I am a Computer Science PhD Student at University of Maryland, and a research assistant at the Maryland Cybersecurity Center (MC2). I am interested in security and applied cryptography research, with a focus on verifiable computation and cryptocurrency. My research advisors are Prof. Elaine Shi and Prof. Charalampos Papamanthou. I am a member of the Initiative for Cryptocurrencies and Contracts.
I am also interested in wireless localization technologies, in which I have been doing research before joining UMD.

I enjoy teaching, and find it very rewarding. I have been fortunate to work as a teaching assistant since I graduated in 2009.
