I am a 1st year Societal Computing PhD student in the School of Computer Science at
Carnegie Mellon University, advised by
I am a member of CyLab, the security and privacy institute at CMU.
My research interests are in attacks and defenses for multi-party machine learning systems. In the past, I was especially interested in privacy and security vulnerabilities in federated learning.
I finished my MSc in computer science in 2018 at the University of British Columbia, where I was a member of the Networks, Systems and Security (NSS) Lab. I built systems for private and secure multi-party machine learning under the helpful supervision of Ivan Beschastnikh.
Even more before that, I finished my BASc Systems Design Engineering in 2016 at the University of Waterloo, where I spent several work terms across on a wide variety of projects, from developing bioinformatics research tools to building online recommender systems infrastructure at scale with LinkedIn.
