I am a Ph.D. student in the Data Systems Group at the University of Waterloo working with Prof. Semih Salihoglu. Currently, I am interning at Microsoft Research working on resource management in the cloud.

My research focuses on developing novel query processing, optimization, and storage techniques for large-scale graph data management. To that end, I work on GraphflowDB, a new DBMS where we rethink each core database component.

I am currently suppported by a Microsoft Research Fellowship and was previously supported by a David R. Cheriton Scholarship.

Previously, I interned at Société Générale, Ericsson, ThalesGroup, InterDigital, and Immersion. I obtained a B.Eng. from Concordia University.
