I am a graduate student in the Computer Sciences Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I'm a member of the Database group and my advisor is Jignesh M. Patel. I also spend time in the Microsoft Jim Gray Systems Lab working as a research assistant.
My current interests include cost-effective data processing in the cloud and efficient large-scale data management.
