I'm a former MSc Computer Science student at the University of British Columbia and former member of the Networks, Systems and Security (NSS) Lab. I worked under the helpful supervision of Ivan Beschastnikh. My research interests span the intersections of distributed systems (current flavor of the month is blockchain), distributed multi-party machine learning, and corrsponding attacks and defenses on multi-party ML. Lately, I am especially interested in privacy and security vulnerabilities in federated learning.
In 2016, I finished my BASc Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo, where I spent several work terms working on a wide variety of projects, from developing tools for bioinformatics research to building online recommender systems infrastructure at Linkedin.
