I’m currently a PhD student in computer science at MIT, where I research topics in security and privacy. Within this area, my interests are broad, ranging from the intricacies of cryptographic protocols and machine learning algorithms to the policy questions that these technologies inevitably implicate.
Last year, I served as the first Staff Technologist at the Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown Law. My research duties included investigating police use of facial recognition, getting involved in tech policy discussions in DC, and developing a nearly-complete law review article about the role inefficiency plays in system design. I also took on teaching responsibilities, co-developing and lecturing on Georgetown Law’s inaugural offering of Computer Programming for Lawyers and leading a series of student seminars on technical topics like Bitcoin and Tor.
I earned my BSE and MSE in computer science at Princeton, where I focused on programming language theory, distributed systems, and security. I spent summers at Google (encryption key management infrastructure) and Microsoft (Project Siena).
