I am a 4th year Ph.D. Candidate in Computer Science at the College of William and Mary, advised by Dr. Gang Zhou. I am also externally advised by Dr. Guoliang Xing from Michigan State University.

I've also been a Mobile Hardware Engineer in Facebook's Connectivity Lab, Menlo Park, CA, since June 2014.

My research interests broadly include mobile computing and wireless networking. The major focus of my recent work has been the impact of smartphone storage on the application performance and energy efficiency.
