Hello! I am a person and a computer science PhD student at Harvard University, advised by Prof. Eddie Kohler. My research sits at the crowded and often confusing intersection of web infrastructure, serverless computing, security, programming languages, and systems performance.

I enjoy Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, playing piano, reading long novels, and simple personal websites that load almost instantly.
