Software Engineer - Core Systems

I work on large scale distributed systems, especially on improving reliability, efficiency and scalability. My current focus is on building out Facebook’s shared compute and storage platform as part of our Infrastructure-as-a-Service effort. My previous projects include:

  • Fault tolerance and disaster readiness
  • Data center capacity management
  • Traffic management
  • End-to-end performance tracing and analysis
  • Data consistency
  • Cache consistency

I received my BS in Computer Engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2003. After a short stint in industry, I obtained my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in September 2011.
