I am a systems builder and hacker who is interested in systems design and distributed systems.
I spent the last few years working on machine learning systems. My interests are diverse: before my PhD, my research ranged from clustering (in bioinformatics) to systems security.
Fall ‘19: I'm looking to start a new project, and am exploring topics in (but not limited to) ML for Systems, and distributed systems. Reach out if you have a problem, insights, or data to share!

3-way cross-region replication is expensive and slow. It helps us if a hurricane takes out a data center (rare), but why pay that price for common events like equipment failures? Can we detect and predict correlated failures?
How do we detect grey failures? How can we design systems that are robust to grey failures, so that we don't have to chose between suffering grey failures and overreacting to them by initiating recovery?

I'm a tinkerer at heart, and am always on the lookout for novel challenges to work on. In seeking opportunities, I aim to optimise for learning and to do meaningful, impactful work. I enjoy the synergy of collaborations, and how they give me the opportunity to learn from other people.
I'm a software engineer and have a relentless urge to automate and optimize all parts of my work process.
I enjoy gliding, skiing/snowboarding, musicals, singing, Singaporean food, ice skating, long scenic drives (and walks), waterfalls, scuba diving, cooking, and good nigiri. I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Cambridge and am a member of Churchill College. I grew up in Singapore, am a 华中子弟, and am a proud alumnus of my high school computer club EC3 (where I learnt to code and hack stuff together.)
