I am a doctoral candidate in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, working with Dr. Karen Sollins as a member of the Advanced Network Architecture group.

My current research is focused on measuring and mitigating Denial of Service vulnerabilities, designing secure and efficient network protocols, analyzing Linux performance bottlenecks, and developing and migrating to Future Internet Architectures. I’m also interested in Internet governance, distributed consensus, information hiding, protocol obfuscation, censorship detection, and data visualization.

I am a proud member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and a strong proponent of net neutrality, digital privacy rights, free and open source software, and equitable global Internet access.

In my spare time I make music, pottery, and video games.
