I am a first-year PhD student in computer science at Stanford. David Mazières is my research rotation advisor for the spring quarter of 2014. I organize the Stanford Security Lunch, so send me an email if you would like to speak there.


Broadly, I am interested in building systems that have interesting and useful security properties. In the past, I have worked on the design and implementation of anonymity-preserving communication systems.

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.


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