Bio

I am a Ph.D student at MIT in the PDOS group advised by Nickolai Zeldovich and James Mickens. I am also seen doing projects with Matei Zaharia, Shafi Goldwasser, and Vinod Vaikuntanathan. I did my undergraduate at Stanford University majoring in Computer Science and doing research under Dan Boneh and John Mitchell. I have also worked on the security team at Google and Facebook. My current research interests are computer security and privacy, systems, and applied cryptography. In the past, I have also done research in energy and computational sciences.

Professional Activities

I am a member of Rough Draft Ventures, so if you are an early stage student startup needing capital, please reach out to me.

To increase the impact of security research, I started The Cybersecurity Factory, a summer program for security startups, with fellow MIT PhD student Jean Yang. If you are interested in participating, please reach out to me!

I also run the security seminar at MIT, and summaries of the talks can be found on the security seminar blog.
If you're in the Boston area and are interested in giving a research talk at the seminar, feel free to contact me.

Non-Research Projects

I volunteer extensively for my graduate dorm, Sidney Pacific. I am currently on the Board of Trustees, where I advise new officers, administer elections, and deal with any major issues. In the past, I was the web chair, where I maintained the site and created new features.

I have written an article on my undergraduate research experience and decision to pursue a Ph.D. It can be found here.
