My face

Hello and welcome! I am a privacy researcher and engineer, and I currently work as a software engineer on a federated analytics research team at Google. I received my PhD from the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Pennsylvania in 2022. I was fortunate to be advised by Andreas Haeberlen, and I also spent two great summers interning at Microsoft Research.

My past research has focused on privacy and security in data analytics systems, particularly in large-scale distributed ones. I have worked on differential privacy, applied cryptography, federated learning, and distributed systems.

In general, I'm motivated to work on public-interest technology and studying/helping to build trustworthy and healthy digital infrastructure. I'm particularly curious about whether (and how) more human-respecting digital infrastructure 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.
