I am a PhD candidate in computer science at Cornell University. 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 lie in the area of theoretical computer science with a focus on security and privacy. My current work focuses on expressing and enforcing fine-grained user privacy on the Internet. My advisor is Fred Schneider. Other professors on my committee include Rafael Pass, Andrew Myers, and Mitchel Lasser.



I have worked as a Teaching Assistant for CS 5430: System Security (Spring 2015, Spring 2013) and for CS 6830: Cryptography (Fall 2011). Prior to joining the Cornell department, I was a Teaching Fellow for various math and computer science courses at Harvard including Math 1a, Math 1b, Math 21a, Math 21b, CS 105, CS 121, and CS 124.
