I am a PhD student at the University of
Wisconsin—Madison, advised by
Professor Somesh Jha. My research
interests lie in software privacy and
security, where my goal is to develop
rigorous solutions to problems that arise
in practical, widely-used applications. My
most recent work examines privacy
issues in statistical models that are used
for personalized medicine, logic-based
methods for reasoning about privacy in
software systems, and a few topics in
applied cryptography. I have also worked
on a number of problems in software
browser security, and dynamic software
In addition to my advisor, I have been fortunate to work with a number of other professors here (Thomas Reps, Thomas Ristenpart, and David Page) and elsewhere, as well as researchers in industry (Ben Livshits, Mihai Christodorescu) through internships at Microsoft Research (Redmond), SRI International, and IBM Research (Hawthorne, N.Y.).
For several years, I was supported by a Microsoft Research Graduate Fellowship.
I plan to graduate this year, and am currently looking for an academic or industrial research position. Please see my application materials for additional information.
