I'm on the academic and research job market! 
Here's my [CV]         

I am a Postdoc at the CS department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
at the ADSL lab. I currently study OS and application data storage problems.

I was a Ph.D. Student at the College of Computing, Georgia Tech. My thesis explored 
methods to extend virtual memory support for heterogeneous memory technologies. 

I am interested in Operating Systems, Computer Architecture, Storage, Distributed Systems,
and Hardware-Software interactions. 
My Ph.D. thesis and current work have focused on
problems at the intersection of hardware and software.
