For the past year, I've been on a career break, focusing on my very young kids (three, three years and under, baby!).
Before that, I was a Principal Software Engineer for Microsoft, working on storage performance for the Azure cloud.
I graduated from Brown University with a B.S. in Computer Science in 2013.

I love computer systems! I have experience working on distributed data systems, multithreaded native code optimization, storage drivers, RDMA networking, and kernel programming. I also have interests in computer graphics, cryptography and operating systems.

I love to learn and teach! I used to do a well-loved 1½ hour "boot camp" technical presentation on Azure Storage a few times a year, and I was a teaching assistant for 6 classes over 5 semesters during my undergrad.

Most recently: C/C++, Windows Driver Model, InfiniBand RDMA. These are all still top of mind.

In the past: OpenGL, Qt, Python, Java, Linux shells, C#, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, SQL. I have used these for nontrivial projects in the past, but it's been a while.


I graduated from Brown University in 2013 with a B.S. in Computer Science, with a 3.8 GPA. Relevant coursework:
