Computer Science

Northeastern University

I am currently a first year PhD student working with Engin Kirda and William Roberston at Northeastern University.

I got my MS and BS in Computer Science from the University of Michigan where I researched censorship, ransomware, and network measurement with J. Alex Halderman and Roya Ensafi. Also at Michigan, I got the opportunity to teach the introductory computer security course for a total of three years, two of which as the head graduate student instructor.

My research interests include, but are not limited to: censorship measurement and circumvention, network measurement, network and web security, usable security, and privacy.
