About Me

I'm a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, advised by Professor Christos Kozyrakis. My research focuses on leveraging ML-based methods to efficiently and intelligently manage resources in the cloud.

Before starting my PhD, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in ECE and CS from Cornell University in 2017. At Cornell University, I worked with Professor José Martínez on reinforcement-learning based garbage collection for SSDs.
