My general interests lie in distributed systems and networking. I attend and submit to NSDI, OSDI, and SOSP. Keywords like big data, storage, consistency, geo-replication, and fault tolerance pique my interest.
At Facebook I work with Sanjeev Kumar et al. on a number of exciting projects. One recent project, with Qi Huang et al. at Cornell, that appeared at SOSP is an analysis of Facebook's photo-serving stack. Another project, with Linpeng Tang et al. at Princeton, explores how to efficiently implement some of the insights we gained in the SOSP paper.
Not very long ago I was a part of the SNS group of Princeton CS. I worked with my adviser Michael J. Freedman and we collaborated with Pittsburghers David G. Andersen (CMU) and Michael Kaminsky (Intel Research) on COPS and Eiger, which provide stronger consistency and semantics for low-latency geo-replicated storage. I am continuing to look at related problems with Haonan Lu et al. at USC.
