I am a PhD student interested in cryptography and computer security. Primarily, I aim to use cryptography to find practical solutions to real-world security problems (though I can occasionally be found attempting to resolve questions of more theoretical interest). My advisor is Mihir Bellare.

Before coming to UCSD, I obtained a bachelor's in Computer Science and Mathematics at Rutgers University. At Rutgers, David Cash introduced me to the fascinating worlds of cryptography and academic research. Kostas Bekris helped solidify my love of research while showing me the ropes of robot motion planning.

In the summer of 2015, I worked with the ever affable Tom Ristenpart at Cornell Tech.
