Hi.  Welcome to my page.

I have moved the sunny rainy city of Seattle on the Pacific Northwest.  It is an amazing small city with the culture of a big city.  My source of income and interesting work comes from Microsoft where I work on the Shared Platform Team.  After PhD, I have pursued my interest in systems/platform software engineering involving 1) distributed systems 2) high performance computing issues 3) algorithmic problems involving search infrastructure (not so much the machine learning part).

Before this, I'm was a Ph.D. student at Columbia University's Industrial Engineering and Operations Research department.  This page is mainly about my research and some of my side interests in music and photography.  There is also a link to my blog which I occasionally update.
Before I came to Columbia, I was an undergraduate student in mathematics and statistics at the University of Toronto.
