Hello! I am an information security, applied cryptography, and technology policy researcher.

I am a doctoral candidate in Computer Science at the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University, where I am supported by a Wallace Memorial Fellowship in Engineering.

I develop novel privacy-enhancing techniques that improve accountability of digital systems integral to our social, political, and economic lives: including elections, public auctions, private communication, foreign intelligence surveillance, content moderation, and censorship.

My research attempts to combine robust accountability with strong cryptographic privacy.
