I am a fifth year grad student in the multidisciplinary ACO program at Georgia Tech, advised by Chris Peikert. My research interests are in theoretical computer science, especially cryptography and database privacy. Most recently, I have been working on the intersection between differential privacy and market economics. Before coming to Georgia Tech, I completed an M.S. in computer science from UT Austin in 2010, and I received a B.A.S. in economics and mathematical and computational science from Stanford in 2008.
I was a TA for CS 6260, Applied Cryptography taught by Sasha Boldyreva, in Fall 2013. Last summer I had the unique opportunity to design and teach a curriculum for a math camp in South Korea. Previously, I was a TA for a graduate cryptography course at UT Austin taught by Brent Waters, and I helped with several undergraduate courses at Stanford.
Resume, as of August, 2014.
