Ph.D. Student in Computer Science and Engineering Department, University of California, San Diego

I am currently a third year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at University of California, San Diego. My research interest lies broadly in the intersection of Systems and Machine Learning, an emerging area which is increasingly referred to as Systems for ML. In this space, I operate as a data management researcher. Taking inspirations from classical data management techniques, I build new abstractions, algorithms, and systems to improve efficiency, scalability, and usability of machine learning workloads. I am also interested in large-scale applied ML, which opens new systems challenges.
