About Me

I'm a third-year Ph.D. candidate in Princeton's Department of Electrical Engineering. Affiliated with the Princeton Parallel Research Group, I am advised by Prof. David Wentzlaff.
By merging computer architecture, computer systems, and economics, I seek ways for building more efficient large-scale computing systems, and incentivizing clients and providers to adopt them.
