About Me

I'm a first-year Computer Science Ph. D. student at the University of Michigan, working with Professor J. Alex Halderman. I just finished my BSE in Computer Science with a Minor in Mathematics this April.

My interests are focused on security and privacy, specifically their connections to public policy, economic factors, and usability. All of these things have to come together to make secure communication happen, so security technologies have to enable themselves through these factors. I look forward to exploring these deeper over the coming years.
