Hi! I am currently a PhD student in Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University working with Prof. Vladimir Braverman.

My research interests include streaming algorithms, sublinear algorithms for 'big data', practical systems and algorithms for network and distributed systems. In particular, I have broad interests in Software-defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization.



  • Faster big data processing system

  • Universal monitoring system based on programmable switches

  • Clustering for Massive Datasets and Applications (project webpage)

  • Efficient streaming algorithms for analyzing high dimensional data from cosmological simulation
