I am an assistant professor at Grinnell College in the Department of Computer Science. I completed my PhD at the University of Massachusetts Amherst advised by Emery Berger in the PLASMA Lab, where my dissertation work was supported by a Google Ph.D. Fellowship. My research interests include software performance, security, and reliability, with an emphasis on probabilistic and statistical techniques. Visit my research page to learn more about my past research projects.
I am happy to meet with you during office hours, even if you are not in one of my courses. Please make an appointment. I may limit my office hours to students in my classes during busy parts of the semester, and I generally limit students to one appointment per week to make sure all students have access to office hours.
No, sorry. I am not taking advisees during the 2018–2019 academic year because I will be on leave the following year.
Yes, as long as you ask at least two weeks in advance. Please send me a request by email (even if we already discussed it in person). In your email, please tell me when the letter is due, how it should be submitted, a brief description of what you are applying for, and attach your application materials.
Yes. We should discuss this in person ahead of time; I can be a much better reference if I know something about the job and why it interests you.
Interested in staying in Grinnell to work on research this summer? See my MAP Opportunities page.
