I am currently in Mountain View, interning at Google on the Chrome Security team. I'll be back in Ann Arbor in the fall, but if you're in the Bay Area over the summer and want to meet up, shoot me an email.
I am a Computer Science Engineering Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science Engineering with a Mathematics Minor from the University of Michigan in 2014, and a Master's Degree in 2016. I work with Professor J. Alex Halderman. Recently, I helped discover the DROWN attack on TLS.
I am interested in computer security and privacy, as well as computer networks, distributed systems, and cryptography. Recently, I've been using measurement-based approaches to answer computer security research questions. As part of this, I maintain ZMap and ZGrab, and helped create the Censys Search Engine. Previously, I interned as a software engineer at Duo Security, and worked for the Computer-Aided Engineering Network in the networking department. During various semesters, I have been a teaching assistant for EECS 280: Introduction to Data Structures, EECS 281: Introduction to Algorithms, EECS 388: Introduction to Computer Security, and EECS 588: Advanced Computer Security. In my spare time I also play drums, piano, video games, and go beer tasting.
I grew up in Chelsea, Michigan, and attended Chelsea High School. While there, I spent a lot of time playing music in the band room, connecting unauthorized devices to the school's Novell Netware intranet, and bypassing network access restrictions.
