I am a Ph.D. student at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill in the Department of Computer Science. I am fortunate to be working with professor Michael Reiter and glad to be collaborating with professor Vyas Sekar. My research interests include computer networking, optimization, security, and distributed systems.
I received my B.S. in Computer Science at the University of Minnesota. While there, I worked as a research assistant at the Department of Computer Science with professors Yongdae Kim and Nicholas Hopper.
My current area of research is Software-Defined Networks (SDN) and network optimization. I am also interested in network security and distributed systems. In the past, I worked on variety of projects centered around censorship resistance, privacy and anonymity, and secure network coordinates.
SOL is a framework that simplifies writing new network optimization applications atop SDN controllers. It abstracts away low-level optimization details and interacts with the controller on user's behalf. SOL is currently under active development. See the GitHub page for more details.
On an internship at IBM research, I helped start a project for resiliency testing of microservice applications. Some ideas from our project have been incorporated into the IBM Service Proxy. The research prototypes are available on our GitHub project page.
