Computer Laboratory

I am a second year PhD student in the Systems Research Group at the University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Dr Robert Watson. I mostly spend my time redesigning the software stack for warehouse scale data centres part of the Cambridge Systems at Scale (CamSaS) effort.

I previously did an MEng degree in Computing and Software Engineering at Imperial College London, where I was supervised by Dr Peter Pietzuch. While there I was awarded several prizes and the Microsoft Research Prize for an outstanding final year individual project.

In the past I have interned in the YouTube mobile team at Google, and in the Data Infrastructure team at Facebook.


My main interests lie in distributed systems, more specifically, in building and managing scalable data processing systems.


In the academic year 2013-2014, I am supervising:
