I am currently (Fall 2019) on the academic faculty job market. Please reach out if you believe an open tenure-track position at your institution would fit my research area.

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 being advised by Christopher Kruegel and Giovanni Vigna.

My research focuses on network and Internet security, and general system security. I work primarily on improving the security and privacy of networked systems, which entails identifying and preventing large-scale Internet abuse, discovering and defending against attacks enabled by network and protocol interactions, and developing techniques to conduct security-relevant network measurements as well as performing them (like, enabling Internet-wide measurements for IPv6; or, investigating how new security features affect core Internet protocols, as DNS). Sometimes, I work on related issues, like understanding security misconfigurations, automated software vulnerability discovery, and improving analysis techniques for 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 time permits, I 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.
