About Me

I am currently a PhD student working with Dr. Keshav Pingali at The University of Texas at Austin. I mainly work in distributed graph analytics and associated algorithms. My research interest is basically looking into ways to make algorithms run faster, whether it be through algorithmic improvements or through leveraging existing hardware in new ways.

I received both my Bachelor's of Science and my Master's of Science in Computer Science in Spring 2017 at The University of Texas at Austin under the Integrated BS/MS program in the Department of Computer Science. My future plan is to go into academia after graduation, but we'll see what the future has in store for me.
