I am a systems builder; I enjoy designing, building, and evaluating software systems. I am currently a member of the Data Platforms team at Lightstep.

Prior to Lightstep, I received a PhD from the University of Utah, where I was advised by Ryan Stutsman. My dissertation focussed on mechanisms for reconfiguration and extensibility in distributed key-value stores.

During my PhD, I was generously supported by a Google PhD Fellowship.
