About Me

I am an undergraduate senior studying computer science at the University of Pennsylvania. For the past year, I have been doing research with Nadia Heninger, focusing on applied cryptography and systems security. I have worked on distributed cryptanalytic computations as well as measurement studies of cryptographic implementations used across the Internet. I am applying to PhD programs this fall.
