I am a 2nd year PhD student in CS at Cornell University, advised by Emin Gün Sirer.

I am currently interested in the broader class of distributed systems research, design, and development. With that said, I have worked on a wide range of fields of computing. During my undergraduate, I worked on unstructured big-data analysis @ Caltech/JPL using Hadoop, compiler development for ORAM computation @ MC2, and a homomorphic encryption library for statistical computing @ CAISS. Since starting my PhD, I worked on empirical leakage analysis of order revealing encryption (Oakland '17), scalability and efficiency of cryptocurrency systems, and -- lately -- in randomized gossip protocols (papers under construction).

Overall, I am interested in research with broad industry impact. I am actively looking for challenging problems whose solutions would enjoy high adoption in today's systems and services. I welcome emails from academics, industry researchers, entrepreneurs looking to collaborate, etc.
