I am a second year PhD student at Cornell University in the Department of Computer Science and a member of the Initiative for Cryptocurrencies & Contracts. I work with Andrew Myers and Ari Juels to design secure systems and build tools to make writing secure code easier.
I received my bachelors degree in Mathematics – Computer Science from Brown University in May 2012 where I worked with Shriram Krishnamurthi on WeScheme, a web-based development environment for Racket. After graduating, I spent three years as a software engineer at TripAdvisor working on major backend data import and infrastructure systems.
In my spare time I like to play Ultimate Frisbee, play board, card, and table-top games, and go for hikes.
