I'm an assistant professor of Computer and Information Science at UPenn, and I'm part of the Distributed Systems Laboratory, the Security Research Laboratory, and The Warren Center for Network and Data Sciences. I also run Penn's security reading group.
Prior to Penn, I was a visiting academic at NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and a Ph.D student in Computer Science at UT Austin where I was part of the Laboratory for Advanced Systems Research and was advised by Michael Walfish. I also spent time at Microsoft Research in the Cambridge, Redmond, and New York City labs.
I'm broadly interested in systems, security, privacy, and networking. My work aims to:
Understanding the Effect of Data Center Resource Disaggregation on Production DBMSs
Verifiable state machines: Proofs that untrusted services operate correctly
A filesystem for safely interacting with untrusted USB flash drives
Private resource allocators and their applications
Rethinking Data Management Systems for Disaggregated Data Centers
Deferred Runtime Pipelining for contentious multicore software transactions
Proving the correct execution of concurrent services in zero-knowledge
What's a little leakage between friends?
