Ph.D. Student in Computer Sciences

University of Wisconsin-Madison


Hello there! I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Wisconsin–Madison studying Computer Sciences. I am advised by Professor Patrick McDaniel. Previously, I have researched the vulnerabilities in the Tor network, and how leveraging trusted execution environments is a practical solution. Currently, I am working on accelerating intrusion detection systems in distributed environments. Additionally, I am exploring secure and private systems for sustainability through the use of multi-party computation.
