About Me

 I am a fourth-year PhD student at UC Santa Cruz working under Prof. Scott Beamer. My research interests lie in High Performance Computing (HPC) around performance analysis and optimization of sparse workloads, such as parallel graph algorithms. As the amount of data grows larger and it becomes sparser, I believe it is important to find better ways of improving locality to increase the performance of sparse algorithms.

 Prior to joining UCSC, I graduated with my Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from University of Southern California. I recently completed a summer internship doing some cool work at NVIDIA. You can read about it here.

 In my free time, I enjoy staying active or being in nature. Hiking and biking allow me to do both!
