I am a PhD student in the Systems and Networking Group and Security & Crypto Group at UC San Diego. I am advised by Stefan Savage and Hovav Shacham.

Before moving to SoCal, I earned my BS in Computer Science in 2009 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I had the privilege of working with Fabian Monrose and Diane Pozefsky. I earned my M.S. and C.Phil. from UCSD in 2013 and 2014, respectively.


My research interests center (very) broadly on security and privacy in computer networks and systems as well as the web. Lately, I've been working on broadening and automating JIT spraying.
