I have been a graduate student at UC San Diego since the fall of 2009. I work with Geoff Voelker and Stefan Savage. My current research is to learn how people use DNS by inferring the intent of domain name registrants. I have previously investigated email spam from a monetary perspective by measuring many email spammers' costs and revenue. I intend to graduate with a PhD in the summer of 2015.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin in the spring of 2009, where I studied Computer Science. My undergraduate research advisor was Paul Barford. We did work relating to both botnets and network measurement during my last two years there. I also spent a lot of time in the Undergraduate Projects Lab while I was there.
