I'm currently spending one year at VMware Research. Afterwards, I'll be starting as an Assistant Professor in Computer Science at Duke in Fall 2021.

I work at the intersection of systems, networking, and security. My current research focus is on trusted computing. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Maryland in Summer 2020, working under my advisor Bobby Bhattacharjee.
