PhD Student, Computer Science

Northeastern University

I am a second year PhD student at Northeastern University in the Networks and Distributed Systems Security lab where I work with Professor Cristina Nita-Rotaru. My current research is focused on privacy-preserving routing in various contexts. In a previous life, I was a Software Engineer in Silicon Valley.

When I’m not doing computer science, I enjoy reading (mostly non-fiction), playing ultimate, and backpacking as far from civilization as I can get.
