Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering

My goal is to design and build networked systems that are secure, reliable and performant.

This goal is fascinatingly challenging because real-world systems consist of a complex series of interdependent components and layers.

My research draws from networking, security, blockchain and machine learning.
