About Me

I am a Ph.D. student in the Data Systems Group advised by Prof. Semih Salihoglu. My research focuses on developing novel query processing, optimization, and storage techniques to efficiently evaluate queries over large-scale graph-structured relations. To that end, I work on GraphflowDB, a prototype in-memory DBMS where we rethink core database components. Specifically, I have focused on: 1) optimizing worst-case optimal joins for heavy join queries; and 2) Factorized query processing to handle data redundancy and reuse intermediate results cached using succinct representations. Recently, I am gaining interest in system infrastructure and data center technologies. I worked on orchestration of DBaaS tenants during automatic cluster upgrades while a research intern at Microsoft Research.

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