I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University. I work in the areas of computer networks and distributed systems. Before joining Hopkins, I spent a year in the AMPLab/RISELab at UC Berkeley, working with Professor Ion Stoica. I received my PhD in the Department of Computer Science at Princeton University in June 2016, advised by Professor Jennifer Rexford. My research has won USENIX NSDI Best Paper Award (2018) and USENIX FAST Best Paper Award (2019).

I am looking for self-motivated students to work with me at Hopkins. Please apply here and mention me in your application materials. Also feel free to drop me an email with your CV.


I work in computer networks and distributed systems, with a focus on programmable switches, software-defined networking (SDN), cloud computing, and big data systems.
