Privacy Control Infrastructure, Privacy and Data Use Org
Building a highly structured, loosely coupled, and decentralized framework to support 2 billion daily mutations to profile-level privacy settings, using Ent, an internal entity framework and Hack (PHP)
Framework simplifies legal compliance, improves developer experience, and reduces the impact of high-severity incidents
Creating data migration scripts to transition users to the new framework, and ensuring privacy policies have identical behaviors through trace equivalence checking
I am a senior majoring in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, advised by Chris Fletcher. On campus, I've been involved in research, teaching, and the student community. As a member of Security and Privacy Research at Illinois, I work in the domain of hardware and systems security, where I study microarchitectural side-channel attacks. I am also interested in privacy-preserving computation, usable security, Internet security and privacy, and distributed systems. I am the lead course assistant for Illinois CS 241: System Programming. In the past, I've helped organize HackIllinois and the Reflections | Projections technology conference. I've had industry experience through software engineering internships at Salesforce and Virtusa. I am currently a Software Engineering Intern in the Privacy and Data Use org at Facebook.
