I am a fifth year PhD student in the Security and Privacy Research Lab at UW, where I am co-advised by Tadayoshi Kohno and Franziska Roesner. My research interests lie broadly in the intersection of software systems, privacy, and security, with a particular interest in emerging consumer technologies. My ongoing work focuses on security and privacy for augmented reality (AR). I previously attended Duke University, where I graduated summa cum laude in May 2014 with a B.S. in Computer Science and a Minor in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies with a concentration in Hindi.
