I am a Lecturer(Assistant Professor) in Computer Science in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. I am a member of the ICSA – Institute for Computing Systems Architecture. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher and Associate Lecturer at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. I earned my Ph.D. working with Prof. Andrea Arpaci-Dusseau and Prof. Remzi Arpaci-Dusseau at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. I also worked at NetApp building the WAFL (Write Anywhere File Layout) filesystem and elsewhere, designing FTLs for SSDs.
I am a Systems researcher and am interested in building systems. My work spans several areas: Concurrency, Operating Systems, Security, Storage and File Systems, Distributed Systems, and Quantum Computing. I am interested in studying real-world isolation-related problems that arise in concurrent systems due to sharing of resources. Consequently, I aim to build abstractions and techniques that provide near-ideal isolation in a shared environment.
