I am a software engineer with Google's Next Billion Users org. I spent two wonderful years at Microsoft Research India, where I worked on information and communications technology for development (ICTD). Before India, 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. Several of my blog posts and publications have topped Hacker News, make sure to check them out!
