I'm currently a Computer Science PhD student at the Network Systems Lab at USC. I completed my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering at SJSU.

I have interned as a Software Engineer at Google and Cisco Systems and as an NSF Undergraduate Researcher at UIUC and Binghamton University.

I am committed to the development of concrete implementations demonstrating the impact of research that I conduct. I believe a strong implementation is necessary to effectively communicate and evaluate a research contribution. As a result, I strive to grow as a Software Engineer to support my research as a Computer Scientist.

I consistently challenge myself to expand my technical skillset and discover new programming paradigms to help me build robust software. I'll never take the half-baked approach to software development. Instead, I prefer to evaluate each technical challenge and make implementation decisions based on the software's current state and potential future needs. The knowledge I gain through this process enables me to make technically sound decisions when quickly prototyping and/or developing a new system.
