Research: My research aims to improve the affordability, accessibility, and privacy of networked systems. My current research centers on building technologies for the developing world, using computational social science, machine learning, and causal inference to develop approaches to combat the negative externalities of technology (e.g., fake news, lack of data privacy), and design of architectures, protocols, and applications for large-scale edge datacenters. I lead the Networks and Systems Group (NSG) at LUMS.
