Research Interests

I have a broad interest in data management including big data systems, relational database optimization, and robust query execution. I seek to marry theoretical foundations with system building. My current project centers on join cardinality bounding.

Brief Bio

I am a PhD student in the University of Washington Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering. My primary research area is Databases where I am fortunate to be working with Professors Dan Suciu, and Magdalena Balazinska.

Previously, I studied mathematics at Cornell University, graduating summa cum laude in 2014. During my undergrad I participated in two REU's at Rutgers DIMACS, and UCLA IPAM. Following my bachelor's I attended the University of Wisconsin completing a Master's in CS where I worked with Prof. AnHai Doan. Before coming to Seattle I interned for Bayesian machine learning startup, Gamalon. More recently I interned at Google where I worked in the Youtube Data Team. I am currently at Microsoft Research in the DMX group.
