I am an Assistant Adjunct Professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of California Irvine. I design, and build novel operating systems. My work spans a broad variety of topics from novel low-latency datacenters to secure and verified kernels.

I run Mars Research Group.

Group's reading group.

I am looking for students interested in operating systems at all levels from undergraduate to PhD, if you have relevant skills send me an email.

We are building three new operatings systems
