• I'm currently enjoying life as a first-year PhD student in the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University, where I study the societal and political impacts of technology and the internet. I am advised by Jonathan Mayer and Jennifer Rexford.


    My background is in software-defined and programmable networks, and I am currently researching network security, data privacy, net neutrality and broadband availability.


    I am also an avid teacher, bass singer, photographer and flailing hip-hop dancer, among other things.
