Advisor: Shan Lu
I’m a Systems PhD student working on all-things fault analysis, advised by Prof. Shan Lu (UChicago), and mentored by Dr. Suman Nath and Dr. Madan Musuvathi (Microsoft Research). I earned a MSc degree in CS from UChicago, a MSc in CommSys from EPFL, and a BSc in CS from the University of Bucharest.
My research focuses on improving the correctness and performance of large-scale distributed systems. I build tools to help developers better reason about their code and fix bugs more efficiently. In my research, I draw inspiration from my time in industry, where my daily grind was to troubleshoot incidents as fast as possible with limited user input.
