4/19 Q&A with Kay Ousterhout ’11

Join PWiCS for a Q&A session with Princeton alum and PWiCS co-founder Kay Ousterhout! In this Q&A session, Kay will talk about what it’s like to do research and be a graduate student (and how it compares to being an undergrad and to jobs in industry).

Kay Ousterhout is a PhD student at UC Berkeley, where her PhD work focuses on understanding and improving performance of large-scale distributed systems. Kay is also a committer for the open-source Apache Spark project, which is a framework for big data processing. While at Princeton, Kay co-founded PWiCS with her friend Jen King.
