[last update: November 2014]

Welcome!


I received my PhD from the Computer Science department at Stanford University in September of 2013. You can still use the email address below to contact me.

At Stanford, I was part of the SING lab that tackles wireless networking and systems research questions.

My research interests lie in sensor networks and green computing. Currently, I lead the PowerNet project. PowerNet includes a 200+ node power measurement infrastructure that monitors computing equipment throughout the Gates CS building. We use the collected data to characterize the energy consumption of office-building computing and propose alternative designs that meet workload requirements at a lower energy cost.
