About

I am a fourth year PhD student at Northeastern University in the Networks and Distributed Systems Security lab where I work with Cristina Nita-Rotaru. My research focuses on exploring security implications of the underlying network in distributed protocols.

Before grad school, 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.
