I am a computer science researcher interested in everything networked. My goal is to make networks that are intelligent, secure, robust, and blazing fast. My research is cross-disciplinary, involving computer networking, distributed systems, security, machine learning, and program analysis. I am certainly not an expert in all these topics, so the key ingredient for any successes I may have is a triplet: my amazing students, researchers, and collaborators!


  • [09/2022] Automatic Generation of Network Function Accelerators Using Component-Based Synthesis accepted to ACM SIGCOMM SOSR 2022.
