I am an Associate Professor of Teaching in the Computer Science Department, a faculty advisor of the Women in Information and Computer Sciences (WICS), co-chair of the Computer Science and Engineering Steering Committee, and Member of the Women in Technology UCI (WiT UCI) Advisory Board. My teaching responsibilities are focused on sophomore and junior level systems and architecture courses, as well as the undergraduate ICS tutoring program.
Prior to joing UC Irvine in Fall 2018, I was a teaching faculty, an undergraduate academic advisor, and the 5-year BS/MS program advisor in the Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University. I mainly taught sophomore and junior level Computer Science systems and architecture courses. I received the CS Department Award for Undergraduate Education in 2012 and CS Department Award for Major Contributions to Undergraduate Education in 2016.
I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from UCLA. My research interests include wireless and distributed embedded systems, hardware intellectual property protection, and statistical optimization.
In my free time I enjoy traveling, baking, paper crafts, and family life with my husband and two boys.
