☕ My Daily Grind

I am a Secure Transports Engineer at Apple. I recently graduated from UCI with a Ph.D. in Computer Science, where I focused on network security and privacy under Gene Tsudik.

My research interests focus on the intersection of network architectures and protocols, security and privacy, and applied cryptography. Much of my recent work is mostly focused on security and privacy problems in the Content-Centric Networking (CCN) architecture. My tenure at UCI was funded by a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

Before Apple, I was a core developer of CCNx in the Computer Science Laboratory at PARC (Palo Alto Research Center). I graduated with a B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science and B.S. in Software Engineering from RIT in 2013. During my time there I was advised by Dr. Stanislaw Radziszowski. In the past, I worked at Intel, L-3 Communications, and other small software firms. I received the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (NSF GRFP) in 2014. I am also a member of the IEEE, ACM, IACR, SIAM, Internet Society, and Tau Beta Pi organizations.
