I am a fourth year PhD student at Duke University working with Prof. Alvin Lebeck on distributed and parallel computing. My research focuses on improving data center congestion control. As an undergraduate, I worked with Prof. Brian Larkins on distributed key-value stores and dynamic load balancing over the Portals Network Interface. I also worked at the New Mexico Consortium/Los Alamos National Labs in the Ultrascale Computing Research Center working on UCX and OpenSHMEM. In the summer of 2019, I worked for Mellanox Technologies as an Architecture Intern (Software Architecture). My work at Mellanox focused on accelerating Los Alamos National Labs applications with the Mellanox Bluefield. I spent the summer of 2020 working at NVIDIA in the gpu-to-gpu communication team writing code for NCCL. Over the summer of 2021, I was a research intern on the Networking Research team working with Ted Jiang, Al Davis, and Larry Dennison. Resume
