Profile picture

I am a postdoctoral research scientist in the Department of Computer Science and the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University since November 2018, where I am working with Nick Feamster. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Santa Barbara in September 2018, where I was advised by Christopher Kruegel and Giovanni Vigna.

My research focuses on network and Internet security, and general system security. Primarily, I work on identifying and preventing large-scale Internet abuse, discovering and defending against attacks enabled by network and protocol interactions, and security-relevant network measurements (like, enabling Internet-wide measurements for IPv6; or, investigating how new security features affect core Internet protocols, as DNS). Sometimes, I work in related areas, such as understanding security misconfigurations, software vulnerability discovery, and addressing the challenges of automatically analyzing malicious software (malware). If you are interested in collaborating, please reach out by email.

I am a strong advocate for open science, particularly open source code and open data, to improve reproducibility of scientific research.

When my time permits, I also enjoy participating in Computer Security Capture the Flag competitions with Shellphish, and I won third place with the Shellphish CGC team in the autonomous DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge.
