I recently completed my PhD at UC Berkeley, where I worked in the Technology and Infrastructure for Emerging Regions group with Eric Brewer. My research interests lie in ICTD, networks, and distributed systems. My work takes a human-centric approach to building scalable systems that provide equitable access to communications, especially in rural and developing regions, and has appeared in venues such as ICTD, SIGCOMM, and NSDI. I have received an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and paper awards at NSDI, ACM DEV, and IEEE DySPAN.

In 2014, I co-founded Endaga, which joined Facebook in 2015. I am currently at Facebook Connectivity.

I graduated in 2010 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I worked with Kevin Jeffay and Jay Aikat on realistic generation of Internet traffic.

Here's my CV.

Selected Publications


I put most everything I write on Github. I am one of the core developers of Community Cellular Manager (github), the software we developed at Endaga and Facebook for running community cellular networks. I used to maintain Orangemesh, a web-based mesh network management tool.

How to say my name

My name is pronounced "SHA-dee" (IPA: /ʃædi/), which rhymes with "daddy" or "caddy". In particular, it does not rhyme with "shoddy", "shady", or "shad-eye". Perhaps surprisingly, saying my name with a southern (American English) accent will get you quite close to the proper pronunciation.
