I am a fifth year PhD student with involvement spanning the AI, Systems & Networking, and Security groups. My advisors are Lawrence Saul, Geoff Voelker, and Stefan Savage. My research focuses on machine learning and applications to security --- in particular, Web page clustering and classification.
In June 2014, I proposed my thesis and became a candidate (CPhil). Graduating September 2015?
In March 2013, I received an MS in computer science.
In the summers of 2011 and 2012, I interned at Google at the San Francisco office. I worked in Internal Privacy under Ian Roxborough.
In May 2010 I graduated with a BS in computer science and mathematics from the University of Richmond, where I had the fine opportunity of working with Jim Davis and Barry Lawson, the former a top-drawer squash and bridge player, the latter a wizard on the mandolin. In Spring 2009 I studied abroad at Macquarie University and had the time of my life in Sydney, Australia (+ New Zealand + Fiji).
