I am a data scientist at DefenseStorm.

I graduated with a PhD in Computer Science from UIUC in December 2021. I was a member of the PERFORM research group, advised by William H. Sanders. I have published a number of papers on various aspects of computer security modeling, including one that won the Best Paper Award at QEST 2020. I also spent two years as an intern conducting research for Sandia National Laboratories in the Center for Cyber Defense. I was a recipient of the Mavis Fellowship in 2019, acted as a teaching assistant in two courses , mentored undergraduate students from underrepresented minorities in research projects, volunteered at the UIUC Hour of Code, and served as a Computer Science Graduate Student Ambassador.
