I received my PhD (2007) and MS (2002) in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. I spent all my graduate years in the Distributed Systems Group led by Prof. David Cheriton. I also weaved in a few startup stints: a summer at Kealia (now part of Sun), another one at BlueArc (now part of Hitachi Data Systems), and, finally, a year at Arista Networks, before joining EPFL in 2007.
