I am pursuing a Ph.D. in the Department of Computer
Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago with
Professor Chris Kanich
in the BITS Networked Systems Laboratory.
I received my undergraduate degree from Lawrence University
in political science, with a focus on economics. I then briefly attended Boston College
Law School, then worked professionally doing web and iOS contract work.
My research focuses on the security and privacy of web browsing.
Current projects include measuring the popularity, desirability
and security costs of browser complexity, and investigating
alternative web systems that prioritize client security and code
predictability at minimal cost to web-author expressiveness.
