I am a PhD candidate in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, advised by Ravishankar K. Iyer. I am affiliated with the DEPEND research group at the Coordinated Science Laboratory. My research aims to improve the performance, resilience, and ease of management of large-scale heterogeneous computer systems.
I am particularly interested in applying ML to challenging problems within the design and management of computer systems. My dissertation research has demonstrated the application of domain-knowledge (i.e., knowledge about software and hardware architecture) as an inductive bias to ML techniques to solve a variety of systems problems, including heterogeneous resource management, distributed failure detection, and resilience assessment.
