About Me

I am a 2nd year Societal Computing PhD student in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Lujo Bauer. I am a member of CyLab, the security and privacy institute at CMU.

My research interests are at the intersection of machine learning, security, and systems. In the past, I was especially interested in attacks and defenses for multi-party machine learning systems such as Google's federated learning.

I finished my M.Sc. 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 B.A.Sc. Systems Design Engineering in 2016 at the University of Waterloo, where I spent several work terms across a wide variety of projects, from developing bioinformatics research tools to building online recommender systems infrastructure at scale with LinkedIn.
