Recent News : I joined Microsoft Research in Aug 2013 and am located in the Silicon Valley campus. I recently was awarded the 2014 Koji Kobayashi Award for Computers and Commpunications for “contributions to the field of network algorithmics and its applications to high-speed packet networks.” Click here to see a list of past winners

I am most passionate about two research directions: network verification and interactive genomics. Click here to see very recent papers in these and other areas.
