I am a second-year PhD student in computer science at Stanford advised by Dan Boneh.

The Applied Crypto Group is my academic home on campus and and I organize Stanford's weekly Security Lunch.

A NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and an NDSEG Graduate Fellowship have funded me in part at Stanford.


Broadly, I am interested in building systems that provide new and useful security properties. Even more generally, I am curious about how technology affects society. In the past, I have worked on projects that apply technology to healthcare, poverty alleviation, and journalism.

My publications page will give you a sense of my research interests. This experience page lists some of my past projects.


I graduated from Yale University in 2010 with a B.S. in computer science. Before that, I was a student at Berkeley High School.
