Overview (aka tl;dr)

I am an Nth year PhD student at UT Austin, under the supervision of Lorenzo Alvisi.
Academically, I am interested in distributed systems, fault tolerance and storage systems.
My upcoming thesis is on Replicating Multithreaded Services and Building Dependable Infrastructure Services.
In my spare time, I write JavaScript (exhibit A: this website), play the guitar and solve various versions of the Rubik's cube.

In September 2014, I will be joining Microsoft Research SVC as a Postdoctoral Researcher.
