I am Chair and Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Puget Sound. I completed a PhD in Computer Science and Engineering at the Ohio State University in 2010 as a member of the Systems Group. My dissertation topic was on the dynamic composition and performance optimizations of scientific workflows over distributed cloud computing environments. I also worked on problems in cloud data management. I was advised by Professor Gagan Agrawal.

I am the recipient of the 2017 Kristine Bartanen Research Achievement Award from the University of Puget Sound. My current teaching and research interests broadly include data management and distributed cloud computing. I am a member of ACM and senior member of the IEEE.

Here's a link to my curriculum vitae.
