Update (Fall 2019): I have graduated and started a postdoc at UC Berkeley, where I am supervised by Mike Jordan and Jacob Steinhardt.

I am in the final year of my PhD in computer science at MIT, where I am advised by Shafi Goldwasser. I am broadly interested in privacy, security, robustness, and the theoretical foundations of computing in the presence of untrusted or unreliable parties or devices.

I received an AB in mathematics and an SM in computer science from Harvard University in 2013, where I was advised by Salil Vadhan. At MIT, I am a member of the Theory of Computation (ToC) and Cryptography and Information Security (CIS) groups. I am currently visiting the Simons Institute program on Foundations of Deep Learning.
