I am a PhD candidate in Computer Science and Engineering Department at Lehigh University advised by Michael Spear. I enjoy working at the intersection of the compiler, memory systems, and concurrent systems, with a focus on simplifying persistent concurrent programming. A central theme of my research is working on hardware/software co-design for emerging memory technologies, and compiler support for abstract instrumented memory interfaces, which allow programmers to exploit hardware and software memory features like persistent memory.
Recently, I have been focusing on providing static analysis and transformation to enable programmers to take advantage of non-volatile memory devices like Intel Optane with minimal modification of the legacy applications.
Outside of work, I serve as a board member of the AnitaB.org Technology Committee, trying to advance opportunities for women in technology, from students in the classroom to executives in industry.
I'm joining Microsoft Research!

I can't really talk about it :)
Research Intern / Oracle Corp
May 2019 - Aug 2019
Improved the performance of highly-optimized Persistent Transactional Memory (PTM) algorithms on systems with Intel Optane DC by designing two new durability domains.
Research Intern / Oracle Lab
May 2017 - Aug 2017
Enhanced the performance of concurrent applications by allowing part of a critical section's code to be executed by multiple threads while waiting for the lock.
