Hello! I am a researcher specializing in next generation Internet measurement with a primary focus on Internet-wide IPv6 scanning.

Previously, I was a PhD student in UC Berkeley's Computer Security research group, advised by Vern Paxson. I was also a member of the Center for Evidence-based Security Research (CESR) and ICSI's Networking and Security group. Prior to Berkeley, I worked on Network Intrusion Detection and Prevention with Mark Smith at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory and platform security at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.

Outside of the lab, I enjoy mentoring students in several of UC Berkeley's mentorship programs, SEED scholarsCS scholarsSUPERB REU, and Berkeley Science Network.
