Masters @ UC, San Diego

Previously, I was a Master’s student at the Department of Computer Science, University of California, San Diego, working with Professor Keith Marzullo and Professor Amin Vahdat. Words fail to express my indebtedness to both of them. Their support in times of trouble and their unwavering belief in my potential as a researcher has always been a motive for me to live up to their expectations.

My M.S. focus was on datacenter networking and my M.S. thesis topic was "Miswirings Diagnosis, Detection, and Recovery in Data Centers".

PhD @UC, Santa Cruz and Stanford University

Currently, I am a Computer Science Ph.D. student at UC, Santa Cruz and a visiting scholar at Stanford University doing research in an interdisciplinary area of Human-Computer Interaction under the supervision of Professor  Katherine Isbister  James Gross, and Keith Marzullo. My research interest focuses on improving emotion regulation via technology affordances (in particular haptics).

My research was funded by Intel and now is funded by NSF.

As for the future plans, I will start my post-doc position at Stanford in Spring 2019.
