The goal of my research is to build easy-to-use and high-performance distributed infrastructure to simplify application development.

We live in an era with unprecedented amounts of data. Popular web applications store the data of billions of users and process these data offline to gather business insights. The increasing deployment of networked sensors, cameras, monitors, and devices also generate massive amounts of data. How to store such vast amounts of data efficiently and reliably across many machines? How to let applications query and update distributed data safely and quickly in the face of concurrency and failure? How to run state-of-the-art algorithms to analyze data at scale so that we can make sense of the collected data in real time? These are the principal questions that my research group aims to address.

I work with a group of talented students in the NYU systems group.

I am teaching graduate-level Big Data and Machine Learning Systems with an emphasis on ML Systems in Spring 2024.
