About Me

I am a computer science PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Stony Brook University. My main research interest is computer systems including cloud computing in general and studying applications' performance under resource contention and its usage in load balancing in particular. I am proud to be a member of PACE Lab where under supervision of Prof. Anshul Gandhi, we have been working on the following projects:
  • Improving resource usage in public clouds using reactive, application-agnostic batch workload
  • Efficient segment assignment strategy for reducing tail latencies in Pinot
  • Dynamic, interference-aware load balancing for cloud-deployed applications
  • User-centric detection and estimation of performance interference
