About me
I am a Research SDE at the Extreme Computing Group in Microsoft Research.

Previously, I was a Research Scientist at the Networking and Communications Lab at HP Labs in Palo Alto, CA. There I lead the Avatar project (featured in the media).

Before that, I got my M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science at Duke University. While working on my dissertation I worked with Landon Cox, and collaborated with Alec Wolman from Microsoft Research.
I am primarily interested in mobile and ubiquitous computing, distributed systems and networking. Currently, my research lies in the intersection between cloud and mobile computing. In pursuing these goals, I worked in collaboration with Microsoft Research in the MAUI (Mobile Assistance Using Infrastructure) project.

I followed up by implementing Kahawai, a system that allows mobile devices, consoles, and weak computers to provide high quality graphics through assistance from the cloud. Unlike previous thin-client videogame streaming approaches, Kahawai leverages the mobile GPU using a technique called collaborative rendering. Through this technique, Kahawai reduces the required bandwidth to the server by up to 80%.

In the past, I worked in a mobile testbed platform called CrowdLab using a mobile hypervisor developed in collaboration with Nokia Research. I also worked on Privacy before joining grad school at Carnegie Mellon in the CUPS Lab on Privacy Bird with Lorrie Cranor. I got my bachelors degree in Computer Science at ITESM in Mexico City.
