I am a doctoral candidate in Computer Science at the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University.

My research interests lie in security, privacy, and applied cryptography and are motivated by gaps in current technology policy. I am interested in developing privacy-preserving techniques that enhance transparency and accountability of systems integral to our social, political, and economic lives.

Some examples include systems used for public auctions, private communication, foreign intelligence surveillance, online advertising, and censorship.

Previously, I investigated manipulation in cryptocurrency markets at the MIT Sloan School of Management, worked on a distributed encrypted filesystem at Keybase, and designed reranking models for search results at Bloomberg. As a Jane Stanford Fellow for Public Service, I also worked with Dr. Shashi Tharoor (Member of Parliament) in his constituency of Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.

I graduated from Stanford University with undergraduate degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science, and an MA in Public Policy.
