Hi there! I'm a fifth-year PhD student, supervised by Alexandra (Sasha) Fedorova at the University of British Columbia. My research interests revolve around data analytics systems, compilers, and computer architecture, and how they can be made to work together to do useful things for people. But, you might also catch me performing a qualitative study. :)
I transferred to UBC, along with Sasha, in Fall 2016. At UBC, I also work with Ivan Beschastnikh and members of the NSS Lab. Before, I was at Simon Fraser University, where I got my bachelors (2007-2011), and worked on a masters (2011-2013) before transferring to their PhD program.
I have significant experience outside of academia. I worked at Oracle Labs for two years (2015-2016) on the RAPID Project [1,2,3] where I worked on the C/C++ compiler for the DPU instruction set, improved project-wide performance analysis tools, and wrote a highly efficient JSON parser and other workloads. Prior to Oracle, I interned at ST-Microelectronics (Summer 2013) as part of my Master's work, where I developed software for emerging scratchpad memory architectures, such as software caches and map-reduce frameworks. Before starting my bachelors, I co-founded a company that built easy to use content management systems.
In my spare time, when I'm not enjoying the outdoors of British Columbia, I volunteer politically and help with systems and analysis. I work on Dandelion, the most reliable mobile canvassing app out there, exclusively for use by progressive campaigns.
To enable data analytics systems to benefit from in-network processing, this paper proposes to offer in-network processing as a service.Paper Slides
