Bootstrapped Resume
Thanks for stopping by. I am Software Development Engineer based in Seattle at Amazon Web Services (AWS). I am working on AWS Amazon Aurora where we are building worlds most avilable and robust distributed cloud database. My work Amazon Aurora focuses on resource management and serververless architecture. Previously, I worked on performance modeling of high-performance computing systems and applications. I have experience with distributed systems, parallel systems, performance modeling, and simulation.

Research Interests: distributed systems, performance modeling, HPC, simulation, PDES, distributed systems, software defined networking, emulation.
