I am an assistant professor in the EECS Department at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where I work on topics in networked systems, networking, and big data as part of the Software Systems Lab. Before joining Michigan, I completed my Ph.D. in the AMPLab at UC Berkeley with Ion Stoica; my dissertation proposing the coflow abstraction and its usage received the 2015 ACM SIGCOMM Doctoral Dissertation Award. I grew up in Dhaka speaking Bangla.

I have openings for multiple motivated PhD students! If you are already in Ann Arbor, drop me an email.
