I am a first-year Security PhD student at UC San Diego in the CSE department advised by Stefan Savage and Geoff Voelker. I work on empirical, large-scale studies on cybercrime and online privacy/security. Check out the cool things my colleagues and I are up to here (Sysnet) and here (Cryptosec).

When I'm not crunching numbers or generating figures, I like to play bikes (on the road and now on dirt!). I also rowed NCAA Division 1 during undergrad.
