I am currently a Graduate Researcher at Rice University, in the Computer Science Department. I'm a member of my advisor Dan Wallach's Computer Security Lab. My research interests include web and mobile security, TLS/SSL, and the Tor project.
When I'm not working at Rice, I've interned with Intel Research Berkeley (now Intel Labs) and Google Inc. I had the pleasure of working with Petros Maniatis at Intel Research where we developed the MOMMIE project that attempts to use optimization to solve difficult tradeoffs in distributed systems in realtime. While at Google I worked with Dirk Balfanz and a team of other brilliant Googlers to develop TLS Origin Bound Certificates, a new extension for TLS that allows the channel binding of authentication information to prevent phishing.
I have previously received a BS in Computer Science from the University of Virginia and an MS in Computer Science from Rice University.
