I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student studying Computer Science in Princeton SNS Group. I work with Prof. Michael J. Freedman and Prof. Asaf Cidon (Columbia University). My research interets are in distributed storage systems and databases. I aim to build storage systems that are both highly performant and cost effective, adapting to the evolving landscape of newer applications and hardware technologies.

Before joining Princeton, I spent five wonderful years at UC Berkeley, where I received my B.A. and M.S. in Computer Science with a research focus on privacy and security. During my M.S., I was advised by Raluca Ada Popa. I also worked closely with Amit Datta from Snap Inc. and Michael Carl Tschantz from International Computer Science Institute (ICSI).
