About Me

I'm a Phd student at UCSD working with Stefan Savage and Geoff Voelker in the Systems and Networking and Security and Cryptography groups. My interests are in Empirical Network Analysis, Security, and Distributed Systems.

My current research is related to passivley modeling end-user system hygiene from network traffic and attempting to find a correlation between users with some form of malware and hygiene.

I completed a B.S. in Computer Engineering and minor in Computer Science at California State University Chico.
