Hello! I'm a PhD student in Computer Science at the Georgia Institute of Technology advised by Daniel Genkin. My research interests lie in computer security and privacy, focusing on hardware security and microarchitectural side-channel attacks. I'm the Founder and Organizer of the Georgia Institute of Technology Security Seminar, a venue for students and faculty to present, learn about, and discuss cutting-edge security and privacy research papers published at leading academic conferences.
Before my PhD, I was a Software Engineer on Messenger Growth at Meta and lived in the San Francisco Bay Area. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign where I was advised by the fantastic Chris Fletcher.
As a member of Security and Privacy Research at Illinois, I researched microarchitectural side-channel attacks, which resulted in a conference paper at ISCA. I was heavily involved as a Course Assistant for Illinois CS 241: System Programming under Lawrence Angrave, and helped organize HackIllinois and the Reflections | Projections technology conference. During breaks from school, I interned at Facebook on Privacy Control Infrastructure, Salesforce on Records Experience, and Virtusa in the Media and Content Division.
I'd love to meet you! If you want to set up a time to chat, I only ask that you leave a short note about yourself and why you're interesting in getting in touch. I recommend starting with email or Twitter.
