About Me

I am a second-year PhD student at Cornell University interested in solving theoretical problems of industrial significance -- specifically at the intersection of Networking and Formal Methods/Programming Languages. My research interests include domain-specific language design, type systems, formal semantics, algebra, graph theory, and formal verification. I also enjoy linguistics, making espresso, and ballroom dance [1] [2].

For the summer, I'm working with Alex Horn at Fujitsu Labs of America to improve the understanding of IP-prefix based forwarding-networks.

My advisor at Cornell is Nate Foster. We're currently working on protocol-independent extensions to NetKAT and programmable packet scheduling.

My undergraduate research at Pomona College focused on Finite-Trace Logics with Michael Greenberg. My thesis developed novel sound and complete axioms for Linear Temporal Logic on finite traces, as well as a cannonical tableau-based decision procedure. This was used to prove completeness for Temporal NetKAT in the generic framework of Kleene Algebra Modulo Theories. Subsequent work has investigated completeness for Linear Dynamic Logic and its finite variant.
