I am a Ph.D. student in the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Science at the University of California (UC), Irvine where I am advised by Professor Sharad Mehrotra and supported by a fellowship from the the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI). My research interests lie in data management with a focus on privacy methods, access control, and internet of things.
Before coming to UC Irvine, I was a graduate student at UC Santa Cruz advised by Professor Phokion Kolaitis where I worked briefly in Computational Social Choice focusing on aggregation of personal preferences. My Erdős number is 3 (Paul Erdős → Bruce Lee Rothschild → Phokion Kolaitis → Me). Prior to that, I received formal training at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Professor Anuj Dawar. I graduated summa cum laude in Computer Science and Philosophy from UC Davis where my honors committee comprised of (the late) Professor Aldo Antonelli, Professor Nina Amenta, Professor Elaine Landry, and Professor Norman Matloff.
