I am a third year PhD student in the computer science department at the University of Colorado Boulder. I am co-advised by Dr. Eric Rozner and Dr. Eric Keller. I am broadly interested in operating systems, networking, and scalable systems research, and have recently been focusing on resource management in serverless systems. I am also working with Gerd Zellweger of VMware Research on a distributed operating systems project. I am very generously supported by a 2021 Google PhD Fellowship.

I received my BS in Computer Science and BS in Mathematics from George Fox University (Newberg, OR) in May 2015. After graduation, I worked in public industry for four years before returning to academia.
