About Me[-]

I am a third year PhD student at the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. I am being advised by Yuvraj Agarwal and Norman Sadeh as part of the SynergyLabs research group. I enjoy working on a wide variety of topics, including parallel systems, big data, privacy, and sustainability. I have a particular interest in SmartBuilding and Efficient Computing research.
