I am an assistant professor at Stanford University. From 2011–2014, I did my Ph.D. at MIT, advised by Hari Balakrishnan. Previously, I spent a year at Ksplice, Inc., a startup company (now part of Oracle Corp.) where I was the vice president of product management and business development and also cleaned the bathroom. Before that, I worked for three years as a staff reporter at The Wall Street Journal, covering health care, medicine, science and technology. I did my undergraduate work at MIT, where I received a B.S. (2004) and M.Eng. (2005) in electrical engineering and computer science. I also received an E.E. degree in 2014.
