I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My research focuses on applied cryptography, security, and privacy.

Previously, I was a PhD student in the Applied Cryptography Group at Stanford University, advised by Dan Boneh. Before that, I completed my bachelor's and master's degrees in Computer Science with an undergraduate minor in Applied Mathematics at the University of Virginia, advised by Mohammad Mahmoody.

I made a tool for more easily viewing UNC course listings.

I am looking for new PhD students for fall 2024. Please apply to the UNC CS PhD program by December 12, 2023 for full consideration by the admissions committee.
