I am a doctoral candidate in the school of
Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue
university. My advisors are professors Patrick
Eugster and Xiangyu
I am passionate about building efficient and reliable computer systems especially distributed systems. My research interests span distributed systems, embedded systems and software engineering. For my thesis, I am developing effective debugging tools for Wireless Sensor Networks. In the past, I have worked on fault detection (invariant-based detection), fault-tolerance (self-stabilization), fault-avoidance (software rejuvenation) and high-performance computing such as grid computing and cloud computing.
I have several years of research and development experience in the industry at companies including Google, Motorola Labs, Alcatel-Lucent among others.
