I am an assistant professor in the Computer Science department at NYU. My research interests are in distributed systems and computer networks. Specifically, I am building storage and communication infrastructures that are fast, reliable and easy to use. I work with a group of awesome students in the Networks and Widea-area Systems (NeWS) Group. I will teach the graduate-level "Distributed Systems" class in Fall 2010. If you are a graduate student or advanced undergraduate, you should take this class!
