I amwas a member of the Systems and Networking group at UC San Diego. My research is in the area of distributed systems with a specific focus on resource allocation and scheduling in distributed environments. I am also interested in the application of economics and game theory to problems in distributed systems. My adviser iswas Professor Alex Snoeren.

I am now at HP Labs as an NSF CIFellow post-doctoral researcher.
