I am a software engineer with Google's Next Billion Users org.

Earlier, I spent two wonderful years at Microsoft Research India, where I focused on information and communications technology for development (ICTD) and got to work with amazing people like Bill Thies, Shubranshu Choudhary, Muthian Sivathanu, Amit Sharma, and Jacki O'Neill.

I graduated from UC Berkeley, where I was supported by an an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. My dissertation was on testing and debugging networked systems. On the side, I also collaborated with folks in the TIER group. I was advised by Scott Shenker, Arvind Krishnamurthy, and (briefly) George Necula.

In a previous life I studied philosophy and computer science at the beautiful University of Washington. I spent most of my time there working on Internet measurement and outage avoidance with Ethan Katz-Basset, Dave Choffnes, Arvind Krishnamurthy, and Tom Anderson.
