I am a second year PhD student at the University of Chicago, USA. 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 contribute as a researcher to the Internet Equity Initiative.
I hold an MSc degree from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Under the supervision of Dr. Josiah Chavula, my MSc research focused towards understanding the state of internet in rural communities of South Africa. I built a real-time network monitoring and troubleshooting system for the iNethi community network in Cape Town. Such an addition aims to equip researchers and network managers with an ability to execute and analyze on-demand network measurements. The ultimate goal is to enable connectivity to a resilient and affordable internet in these communities.
In a past life, I was a software engineer in the Finance Technology industry. I worked for over a year in the Seller Risk subdivision at PayPal, Inc., which was followed by a brief stint in a customer-facing team at ePayLater.
I built this website as a side project to share my skills and experiences with the tech and academic community. Hope you like it!
