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.
