I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley in Dec 2016, advised by Vern Paxson. I am now a Post-doctoral Research Scholar at the International Computer Science Institute, Berkeley. My research interests are in the areas:
For my dissertation, I worked closely with the operational security team at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL), using data collected at the lab network to study the problem of credential compromise. I have also worked on measuring censorship, mining identifiers from network traffic, and the underground economy.
At heart, I am a data enthusiast, and enjoy the art of mining large-scale datasets to uncover interesting information that can both (i) enhance our understanding of the state of Internet, and (ii) lead to better defenses against Internet threats.
