Computer Laboratory

Jan 2018: I have submitted my dissertation, and have joined the RISE lab at Berkeley as a post-doc. See my new website.

I am a final-year PhD student in the Systems Research Group at University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Dr Robert N. M. 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 cluster management team at Google, in the Data Infrastructure team at Facebook, and at Microsoft Research.


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


In the previous academic years I have supervised the following courses:
