Hi! I'm Alana Marzoev.
As of December 2017, I have completed my undergraduate studies at Cornell University's College of Engineering, where I majored in computer science. This spring, you will be able to find me in Cambridge, U.K., where I will be prototyping a new optical network interconnect at Microsoft Research.
At Cornell, I spent my free time working on a myriad of different projects, including improving the hardware efficiency of stochastic gradient descent, designing approximately fair cache allocation policies, and exploring the feasibility of disaggregated datacenter architectures. I also dabbled in mechanical engineering, spending a year leading a team of 50 engineers working to build a hyperloop pod prototype for SpaceX's Hyperloop Pod Design competition.
My research interests currently lie within the intersection of artificial intelligence, systems, and networking.
