[CV] (February 2017)

I am a PhD candidate in Systems Software in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech, advised by the former Karsten Schwan, and Ada Gavrilovska. My research interests lie within operating systems and systems software, targeting modern many core and high-performance architectures. I am driven to understand and improve the intersection of these layers, allowing applications to best exploit these platforms. Most recently, I focus my research on scalable memory management of large-memory single node systems with hundreds of cores. My earlier work focused on enabling applications to scale on shared distributed heterogeneous clusters. I am always looking for new collaborators to work with, and have had the privilege to work with many throughout my projects.
