Hi! I am a 5th Year CS Master's Student @ CMU, advised by Rashmi Vinayak in the TheSys group. I am fascinated by errors in computation and the algebraic structures that allow us to reason about fundamental hardness of correction. I am investigating the application of erasure codes in distributed storage systems through the convertible codes framework, a related, exciting subarea similar to the node-repair problem!

I was previously a SWE intern at Goldman Sachs in 2022, where I worked on the permissions streaming engine with the systems engineering team. This summer 2024, I will be joining Amazon as a SDE intern in Seattle, and in the fall, I will be heading to Purdue University to pursue a PhD in Computer Science!
