I am an Assistant professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (jointly affiliated) at Columbia University, and a member of Columbia's Data Science Institute. I have broad research interests in software systems, storage, ML for systems and ML for security. A general theme of my research is tackling real-world problems often in collaboration with industry.
Previously I was the Senior Vice President of Email Protection at Barracuda Network, where I was the co-GM of the $200M email security and archiving business, with a team of 100 engineers and product managers. I was fortunate to take part in building two successful products, (Sentinel and Forensics). I joined Barracuda via the acquisition of my startup, Sookasa, where I was the CEO and co-founder.
I completed my PhD at Stanford University under Mendel Rosenblum and Sachin Katti, focusing on distributed storage systems. My research was adopted in commercial storage systems of several companies, including Facebook, Tibco, Hortonworks and Rubrik. I obtained my PhD and MS in Electrical Engineering from Stanford and my BS in Computer and Software Engineering from the Technion.
