Hi! I’m a senior in computer science at
the University of Michigan.
I currently work as a research assistant
at Prof. Ensafi’s lab, in collaboration with Prof.
Halderman’s lab, for computer and network security.
My recent work includes first-authoring a paper (under submission) and
building the lab’s startup, Censored Planet.
I also currently work as a teaching assistant for EECS 183,
an introductory computer science class with ~1000 enrolled students.
I teach weekly lab sections, hold office hours, and work in a team to
shape all aspects of the class.
In the past, I was a software engineering intern at
and research assistant at
Merit (mentored by Dr. Kallitsis),
both in the field of network security.
Evaluation of Russian Censorship
Studied Russia’s network censorship practices in collaboration with Russian
activists. Developed and executed novel measurement methods to detect and
classify censorship techniques. First-author paper in submission at
a major security conference.
Measurement of Global DNS Manipulation
Developed from scratch and deployed an implementation of
a tool which measures DNS interference for ~160 countries from just 1 machine
in the US. Collected data is available at
MIT Technology Review.
ISP-Scale DDoS Mitigation
Worked as a research assistant for Merit, an ISP which
operates 4000 miles of state-wide Internet fiber optic infrastructure. Explored
DNS-side DDoS attack detection through real-world Internet traffic data to
extend AMON, Merit’s
high-speed 10Gbps+ network monitoring tool. Presented at the annual
UROP research symposium.
Enterprise Network Security
Worked as a software engineering intern for
a SaaS network analytics, monitoring, and security company. Implemented
additional security product features, fixed software issues, and improved the
integration testing pipeline.
USENIX Security Symposium 2018
Lab-funded attendee at
USENIX 2018, a major
security research conference. Worked in a team to prepare a
and learned about new advancements in the field
through presented talks and papers.
Voting Machine Forensic Analysis
Ongoing project to study used voting machines publicly available on
eBay. Exploring potential dangers such as recoverable voting data
and possible attacks if such machines are re-bought and used in future
elections. Covered in
U-M CSE news.
