I’m a graduate student researcher and PhD candidate at the University of California, Santa Barbara on the academic job market this year. I work with Tevfik Bultan in the Verification Lab. My interests broadly involve program analysis for security-driven concerns. For the past few years, I have focused my research towards side-channel vulnerabilities in software. I've developed tools for their automatic detection and quantificaiton, and I'm currently researching timing side channels introduced at runtime by just-in-time (JIT) compilation. Prior to starting my PhD, I received my bachelors degree from Princeton University in mathematics. Outside of lab, I am a competitive ballroom dancer and an aerialist.
