I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Puget Sound. Before joining the faculty at Puget Sound, I spent four wonderful years as an Assistant Professor at Washington State University, Vancouver. I completed a PhD in Computer Science and Engineering at the Ohio State University 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 am the recipient of the 2017 Research Achievement Award from the University of Puget Sound. My current teaching and research interests broadly include data management and distributed cloud computing.

Here's a link to my curriculum vitae.
