I will be joining CMU as a Ph.D. student in the Fall of 2019, working with Prof. Nicolas Christin and Prof. Vern Paxson. I have worked in a variety of topics within security: vulnerability reproduction, deep learning for binary analyses, anonymous communications, moving target defenses, usable security, and computer security from legal and organizational perspectives. Currently, my interests revolve around computer security issues with societal implications.
I obtained my Bachelor of Science from The Pennsylvania State University as a Schreyer Scholar and a member of The Presidential Leadership Academy. I completed my honors thesis under the supervision of Prof. Peng Liu and Prof. Dinghao Wu as a member of the Penn State Cyber Security Lab. In 2017, I was a Research Assistant in the DEDIS Lab at EPFL, under the supervision of Prof. Bryan Ford and Prof. Jean-Pierre Hubaux. I also interned at Microsoft’s CDP Team and PwC’s Advisory branch in 2016 and 2015, respectively.
I am a recipient of the (ISC)² Information Security Scholarship (2016), the Black Hat Student Scholarship (2018), and the IEEE S&P Distinguished Paper Award (2018).
