I am a third year Computer Science PhD student at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). I work with some awesome professors at SYSNET and my primary advisors are George Porter and Geoffrey M. Voelker. My current work focuses on Terabit/s networks and the communication channels between the hardware and the OS to make this happen.
I developed an open source benchmark suite for machine learning and hardware researchers to leverage. To date it has been in use by over 100 universities and companies. In my spare time I work on improving undergradute engagement and diversity in computer science research.

Seelig’s talk on creativity has applications in entrepreneurship and research. It’s fascinating how something simple as reframing problems by asking what would change if I solved this problem can stimulate new ideas and jump-start creativity.

One of the most important talks that I have ever watched about the nature of research and success by a giant of computing, telecommunications, and mathematics. Very rewatchable and tremendously inspiring.
This is the first part of a multi-part post going over RDMA, current research and RDMA’s role in the future of networking.
