I am currently a fourth year PhD student advised by Alina Oprea
and Cristina Nita-Rotaru
, working as a member of the Network and Distributed Systems Security Lab (NDS2
My research is broadly at the intersection between machine learning, security, and privacy. The goal of my research is to design training and deployment of machine learning that is secure from real world adversaries. I also study the design of machine learning algorithms that preserve the privacy of individuals in the training set. I rely on techniques drawn from machine learning, theoretical computer science, and security.
During summer '19, I was at Google Brain Privacy and Security, working with Nicolas Papernot on model extraction attacks. In summer '18, I worked at DoS and Abuse at Google, using machine learning to protect Google Cloud customers from DoS attacks.
In other news, I enjoy running, swimming, and weightlifting. I've also been known to compete in Super Smash Brothers tournaments
