I am a 2nd year PhD student in the LSD lab at UC Santa Cruz. I am broadly interested in distributed systems and the abstractions we use to build them. Lately, I’ve been focusing on cloud-native programming models and the challenges they present to developers.
I lead a small engineering team at Impossible Effort, where we are currently building a new social tool for organizing and archiving community events. I also record and produce music as Nuns Honey - have a listen!

obsidian-jot (Dec 2023)
A macOS menu-bar app that allows you to append a quick thought to an Obsidian daily note (or some other digital notebook) via a global hotkey. Helps you avoid even the slightest context switch between applications so you can persist a thought into your note system almost as quickly as you can think it. I needed this so I made it!
