I'm currently building stuff at Databricks. I have also worked on network data analytics, mobile systems, wireless security, location privacy, peer-to-peer systems, and online multiplayer games. My broader interests are networking, security, mobile systems, and distributed systems. I approach these areas as a systems researcher, meaning that I like building and measuring real systems.
I completed my Ph.D. in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University in 2009, where I worked with Srini Seshan. I received my B.A. in Computer Science from the U.C. Berkeley in 2003. I also spent time at AT&T Research, Intel Labs, Microsoft Research, and Sun Microsystems.
When I'm not writing code and papers, I like to hike, climb, ski, bike, and travel -- activities that I use to hone my amateur landscape/adventure photography skills. You can find me elsewhere on the web at AT&T Labs, Google+, Facebook, and Flickr.
