I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Computer and Information Science department at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn). I am a member of the NetDB research group where I am being advised by Prof. Boon Thau Loo. Before joining UPenn, I received my PhD in Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) under the supervision of Prof. Divyakant Agrawal and Prof. Amr El Abbadi. My research mostly lies at the intersection of large-scale data management and distributed fault-tolerant systems.
