I'm a first year Ph.D. student in the RISE Lab at U.C. Berkeley working with Professor Joe Hellerstein. In general, I'm interested in databases, data systems, and distributed systems. My current work focuses on data context services. Check out what we're working on here and here.

I graduated from U.C. Berkeley with a B.S. in EECS in May 2015. I've TA'd for Berkeley's undergraduate database systems course three times. You can find my resources here.

I occassionally write about things that I'm interested in.

In my free time, I read a lot, watch soccer, football, and basketball, complain about politics, learn new languages, try to travel, and hack on random things. Other things I'm interested in or enjoy doing (in no particular order): Constitutional law, beer, productivity apps (e.g., to-do lists; my latest attempt is the Bullet Journal), sarcasm, existential philosophy, playing guitar, lots of different kinds of music , Star Wars, Star Trek, driving stick shift, trying new food, running, watching TV.

Feel free to shoot me an email or tweet at me to get in touch!
