I am working as a software engineer for Google's NetInfra org (previousy: Next Billion Users).

Prior to Google I spent two wonderful years at Microsoft Research India, where I focused on information and communications technology for development (ICTD) and got to work with amazing people like Bill Thies, Shubranshu Choudhary, Muthian Sivathanu, Amit Sharma, Jacki O'Neill, Indrani Medhi-Thies, and Swami Manohar.

I graduated from UC Berkeley, where I was supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. My dissertation was on testing and debugging networked systems. On the side, I also collaborated with folks in the TIER group. I was advised by Scott Shenker, Arvind Krishnamurthy, and (briefly) George Necula.

In a previous life I studied philosophy and computer science at the beautiful University of Washington. I spent most of my time there working on Internet measurement and outage avoidance with Ethan Katz-Bassett, Dave Choffnes, Arvind Krishnamurthy, and Tom Anderson.
