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 user privacy for shared data. 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.
