I am interested in both theoretical and systems aspects of parallel computing, including scheduling, runtime systems and dynamic program analysis. I also enjoy learning about and implementing new techniques in computer science education, and I have a growing interest in applied data science and machine learning, especially projects involving interdisciplinary collaboration.
