I am a Computer Science PhD candidate at the 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.
Starting Fall 2018, I will be a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley, hosted by Prof. Dawn Song.

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