Hello there! I'm Vic, a first-year Computer Science Ph.D. student at the University of Washington. I am advised by Simon Peter of the UW Computer Systems Lab. Before UW, I worked with Malte Schwarzkopf and Adam Belay as a member of the ETOS group at Brown.

I design systems for emerging datacenter computing trends. My latest work improves datacenter resource utilization with HW/SW co-design, resource pooling, and scheduling.

I studied Finance and CS as an undergraduate at NYU Stern School of Business, with a focus on high-performance quantitative trading.

Lately I have been shooting with prime lenses exclusively. Here're some 35mm shots:
