I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Engineering
at the University of Michigan
I am advised by Prof. Z. Morley Mao
and am a member of the RobustNet Research Group
My research focuses on computer networking and security, particularly the cross-disciplinary application of networking and security concepts.
My research seeks to apply concepts from these areas to improve smart manufacturing systems.
I am also broadly interested in the area of edge computing.
I received a B.S. (Honors) in Computer Science from the University of Arizona
in May 2018.
During my undergraduate years, I was an Undergraduate Research Assistant in the Network Research Laboratory
, working on the Named Data Networking
(NDN) project and advised by Prof. Beichuan Zhang
I also previously worked on NDN research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology
(NIST), supervised by Dr. Lotfi Benmohamed.
My research during this time focused on improving network performance through in-network caching, particularly for big data systems and LAN environments.
I also conducted research on a standardized framework to perform measurements in NDN networks.
