I'm a Master's graduate working with Stefan Savage, Geoff Voelker and Kirill Levchenko. My research interests are in systems, security, and networks. I'm a member of The Center for Evidence-based Security Research, The Center for Networked Systems and The Center for Automotive Embedded Systems Security. I completed my undergrad at UCSD where I founded the undergraduate information security club Eve. I also maintain the UCSD Git server.
