I am a Software Engineer at Google, Los Angeles. Before joining Google, I was a member of the SoftArch research group at USC. My research focus was model-driven software engineering and architecture, software architecture analysis and recovery, and automated optimization of software models. My PhD dissertation is titled: "Techniques for Methodically Exploring Software Development Alternatives".

We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The foundation of all you will ever achieve is the enormous amount of hard work and perseverance you put in today.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle.Steve Jobs
