About Me

I am a 4th year PhD student in the Database Group at Brown University working under Tim Kraska, Ugur Cetintemel and Stan Zdonik. I am broadly interested in platforms for large-scale data management, particularly systems for performing complex analytics with big data, such as machine learning.

Before coming to Brown, I received a Bachelor of Science from Lehigh University in computer engineering (May 2012), primarily focusing on database systems under the guidance of Henry Korth.

I am currently working on a new system for complex analytics (e.g., machine learning, predictive modeling) called Tupleware that integrates compiler and database techniques to achieve orders of magnitude performance improvement over Hadoop, Spark and column-store databases.
