About me

I am a PhD candidate at the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, University of Waterloo, Canada, supervised by Prof. Raouf Boutaba. During my PhD, I have worked as an intern at Google (USA), IBM T.J. Watson Research Center (USA), and INRIA - Nancy Grand Est (France). My research spans several areas of systems and networking, including network functions virtualization, network virtualization, software-defined networking, and large scale decentralized systems such as peer-to-peer networks and blockchains.
