Hello and welcome! I'm a fifth-year PhD student in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Pennsylvania.
My advisor is Andreas Haeberlen. I am on the industry job market this year!
My research focuses on privacy and security in data analytics systems, particularly in large-scale distributed ones. I work on differential privacy, applied cryptography, federated learning, and distributed systems.
In general, I'm motivated to study and build privacy-protecting tools that lead to greater freedom and safety, and more broadly to develop ethical computing technology through accountability and transparency. I'm particularly curious about whether (and how) privacy-preserving technology can help enhance democracy and decrease inequality.
I grew up in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, and completed my bachelor studies in Computer Science at Columbia University.
