I am a former PhD student from the Distributed Systems Laboratory advised by Professor Ian Foster. My research focus is in the area of computer systems, particularly loosely coupled distributed application frameworks like MapReduce and their applications to large scale graph mining algorithms. I received my PhD degree in December, 2013 and joined Google. I currently live in the San Fransisco Bay Area.
