I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Computer Sciences Department of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, a member of the Database Systems Group, and a Google PhD Fellow in Structured Data. My advisor is Jignesh M. Patel. Prior to my studies at Wisconsin, I earned a Bachelor's degree with honors in Computer Science from the University of Michigan.


My main research interests are in high-performance main-memory database management systems, and in alternative semi-structured data models (principally JSON and Protocol Buffers). Along with my advisor Jignesh Patel and other UW students, I am pursuing research projects in these areas:

I also interned with the Ads Backend team at Google in the Summers of 2012 and 2013, where I worked on the massively distributed ads analytics pipeline and the F1 distributed database.
