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

The Applied Crypto Group is my academic home on campus and I organize Stanford's weekly Security Lunch. If I am not in the Gates Building, you can find me out enjoying the hills.


My research focuses on building systems that provide new and useful security properties. My favorite systems are ones that lend themselves to rigorous formal analysis but that are also practical enough to implement and use. My publications and experience pages will give you a sense of my recent work.

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


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