I am a PhD Candidate at UC San Diego in the CSE Department. Previously, I worked on a range of things right from mobile computing, kernels, to next generation storage systems. Currently, I primarily work on the intersection of security and large scale network measurements! I am advised by Geoffrey Voelker and Stefan Savage. I also collaborate on many projects with KC Claffy and other great folks over at CAIDA.

Projects

A New Look at DMCA Section 512 Process

This work focussed on the Digital Millenium Copyright Act and the potential "chilling effects" that might arise from the DMCA Section 512 process which allows copyright holders to take down content which they believe infringes their copyright. The goal driven was to enable a data-driven analysis of this extra-judicial takedown provision thereby enable recommendations that are primarily based in solid data. As a first step towards this goal, we establish a framework to begin understanding the takedown process and its effect on the Internet. [Report]
