• I'm a third-year PhD student in the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University, where I study the societal and political impacts of the internet and technologies that depend on it. 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... or I was, before COVID hit. Now I write a lot. Most recently, I was an invited Guest Editor at ACM XRDS Magazine. Read the issue!
