I am a fourth year computer science student participating in the 5 year B.S./M.S. program at UC Santa Barbara. I am also an active researcher at the SAND (Systems, Algorithms, Networking, and Data) Lab, headed and advised by Professor Ben Y. Zhao and Professor Heather Zheng.
In the summer of 2013 I will be working as an intern on the Engineering Analytics team at the enterprise cloud storage company Box!
In my research I am focused on the querying, mining, and modeling of static and dynamic graph topologies. Typically the graphs I focus on are those found in online social networks (OSNs). I have also done a bit of work in OSN security.
Outside of research I am interested in the design and implementation of novel cluster computing systems, particularly in the context of fundamental system design problems (e.g. file systems, networking, scheduling).
