Note: I haven't updated this site in a couple of years now. It's on my TODO list, but the information here is a little stale.


I am particularly interested in topics in the systems area of computer science, specifically parallel and distributed systems and programming languages. My research focuses on techniques to make programming easier and more reliable, although sometimes I have obtained results in areas tangential to my main interests.

Check out my research page for more details.


The courses I teach include

This fall, I'll be teaching two sections of Data Structures & Program Development (CS 70). Check out my teaching page for more details.
