Hi! Welcome to my homepage. I am a Computer Science graduate student at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I am part of the Wisconsin Advanced Internet Lab and my advisor is Dr. Paul Barford.

My area of research involves computer networks and includes Internet security, network measurement, network protocols and distributed systems. I will be joining SRI International in September.

You can find a list of my papers and publications below:
