I am a computer scientist and engineering manager at Google, where I work in the areas of mobile computing, distributed systems, and networking. I lead the Chrome Cloud team, which spans multiple subteams: Chrome Sync (synchronizing bookmarks, settings, tab history across a user’s devices); Chrome Data Saver (a proxy service to compress web pages); Google Cloud Messaging support in Chrome; and multiple projects to improve Chrome’s performance and functionality in emerging markets.

Prior to joining Google, I was a professor of Computer Science at Harvard University from 2003 until 2010, and a senior researcher at Intel Research, Berkeley from 2002-2003. I did my PhD in Computer Science at UC Berkeley (2002) and my bachelor’s in Computer Science at Cornell University (1996).

My research interests span a broad range of topics in the space of mobile computing, operating systems, networks, distributed systems, and programming languages.

Check out this blog post for some background on the Chrome Data Saver proxy, and this paper from NSDI 2015 which describes the service in detail.
