About Me


I am a graduate student at Northeastern University in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences. I started at Northeastern in Fall of 2018. Before that I was a Software Engineer at BlueTalon building a secure authorization layer for enterprise data storage. Currently, I’m doing research with Professor Cristina Nita-Rotaru in the Networks and Distributed Systems Security lab.

I have BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Iowa.


  • Topics: security, privacy, distributed systems, networks
  • Specifics: blockchains, payment channel networks, privacy-preserving routing

My current research project is focused on security and privacy of payment channel networks, which are related to–but not the same as–blockchains. More generally, I’m interested in the security of distributed systems and computer networks.
