I am a third year Computer Science Ph.D. student at Cornell University. My advisor is Professor Rafael Pass. My research interests span the areas of cryptography and game theory.

I received my B.S. in Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University with a second major in Mathematics, where I worked with Professor Michael Dinitz.


I help run the Cornell Crypto Seminar. If you are interested in giving a talk, please let me know!
