I am a PhD candidate and lecturer in computer science at Cornell University. My advisor is Fred Schneider. Other professors on my committee include Rafael Pass, Andrew Myers, and Mitchel Lasser. Prior to joining the Cornell department, I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in computer science and mathematics from Harvard University.

My primary research interests are in security and data privacy. My current work develops a new approach to data security in the modern world based on use-based authorization. The focus is on understanding user privacy preferences, designing a reactive policy language for use-based authoriztion, enforcing such authorization policies in decentralized systems using Intel SGX, and extending our regime to support practical use-based privacy.

I am on the job market!  CV
