About Me:

I am a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL - École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne). I do Systems and Networking research with Professor Katerina Argyraki, at the Network Architecture Lab.

I received my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Southern California in 2016, advised by Professor Ramesh Govindan in the Networked Systems Laboratory.

My recent work involves applying program analysis techniques to network functions to find performance issues. By reasoning about algorithmic complexity and CPU cache effects, the system is able to generate adversarial workloads that degrade performance. These workloads can then help developers debug the underlying issue and help operators provision network resources to help defend against potential attacks.
