I am a Postdoctoral Researcher part of MAST at Stanford advised by Christos Kozyrakis. My research focuses on system design understanding the performance characteristics of ML applications and designing techniques, tools and runtime systems for edge and cloud computing environments. I completed my BS, MSc, and PhD at the University of Michigan.

I am fortunate to be a co-founder of Clinc, an AI company building virtual assistant technologies for enterprises. I primarily served as the company’s Chief Architect building and deploying conversational AI to customers around the world.

My work has been recognized with an IEEE Micro Top Picks award and has been covered by multiple news outlets including Wired, VentureBeat, Forbes, Crains, and Finance Buzz.
