Hi. I'm a Google PhD Fellow in Electrical Engineering with a focus on Computer Architecture at Stanford University (previous MS and BS at Stanford University). My current research is focused on improving the resource efficiency of large-scale datacenters through intelligent Quality-of-Service management. For example, I developed techniques to scale the capabilities of existing datacenters by 2x-10x. For fun, I also work on an autonomous hexacopter project.
