About me

I am a postdoctoral research associate with Professor Stacy Patterson at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). I am currently looking for a full-time position as a researcher/software engineer.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from RPI, where I was awarded with the Robert McNaughton Prize for outstanding performance as a graduate student in Computer Science. I was a member of the Worldwide Computing Lab, and advised by Professor Carlos A. Varela and Professor Stacy Patterson. Before joining RPI, I received my B.S. and M.Eng. from Tokyo Institute of Technology.

Research

My current research interests include data streaming, distributed systems, and cloud computing. In particular, my Ph.D. dissertation focuses on QoS-aware elastic virtual machine scheduling.
