About me

I am a researcher in computer networks and distributed systems. I recently moved to the Greater Portland, OR area and am currently looking for job opportunities.

My prior research experiences covered topics including network systems, Internet measurement, broadband networks, and peer-to-peer systems. In particular, I am interested in improving our understanding of network performance by studying real-world deployments, often with a focus on capturing performance from the network edge, and using this to help improve the design of future systems.

Before moving back to the US, I was a researcher at the IIJ Innovation Institute Inc in Tokyo, Japan. From August 2017 to August 2019, I was funded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Postdoctoral Fellowship, supervised by Kenjiro Cho. After completing my fellowship, I joined IIJ as a full-time research scientist.

In December 2016, I completed my PhD in Computer Science Northwestern University. During my studies, I was advised by Professor Fabián Bustamante as a member of AquaLab. I also received my Master of Science degree in Computer Science in fall of 2013. In spring of 2009, I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering with a minor in Japanese Language and Culture from Northwestern University.
