I am a second year PhD student at the University of Chicago. I am interested in working on internet measurements and security. As a member of the Network Operations and Internet Security (NOISE) lab, I am being advised by Prof. Nick Feamster. I also work as a researcher at the Internet Equity Initiative. Previously, I was at the University of Cape Town for my masters, where I worked with Dr. Josiah Chavula.

In a past life, I was a software engineer in the Finance Technology industry. I worked for over a year in the Global Data Science team at PayPal, Inc., which was followed by a brief stint in a product development team at ePayLater.
