I am a third year computer science PhD student at UCSB. I work in the Distributed Systems Lab (DSL). My research focuses on building distributed and cloud data management systems. In particular, I am interested in systems that replicate data across data centers for fault-tolerance and availability. My work includes building systems that target minimizing response time while maintaining consistency. Prior to joining UCSB I was a member of the netlab at KAUST working towards my MS degree with Dr. Basem Shihada on the problem of unfairness of wireless mesh networks.
