I joined Google in 2017. I work on Monarch, a planet-scale in-memory time series database, that powers Google Cloud Platform products including Cloud Alerting, Cloud Monitoring, and the Monitoring Query Language. I also work on TCube, Monarch's long-term time series storage systems. My work focuses on indexing Monarch and TCube data to guide distributed query execution. I got my PhD in Computer Science from Stony Brook University researching file and storage systems. Here is my Google Scholar profile.
