I am a final year Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at UC Berkeley, where I am advised by Vern Paxson. My research interests are in the areas:
For my thesis work, I work closely with the operational security team at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL), using data collected at the lab network to study the problem of credential compromise. I have also worked on measuring censorship, mining identifiers from network traffic, and the underground economy.
At heart, I am a data enthusiast, and enjoy the art of mining large-scale datasets to uncover interesting information that can both (i) enhance our understanding of the state of Internet, and (ii) lead to better defenses against Internet threats.
