I am a second year graduate student in the Computer and Information Sciences Department at the University of Oregon - Eugene. I work in the Network & Security Lab with Dr. Jun Li.

My Research interests are in Networking, The Internet of Things (IoT), and their Security. Currently, IoT environments are not suited to run heavy encryption algorithms, and I am interested in designing systems that provide these smart environments needed security under their recource limitations.

Before attending UO-Eugene, I completed my bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin - Madison in 2015.

In addition to studying Math and Computer Science, I also spent a year studying at Københavns Universitet in order to receive my certificate in Scandinavian Studies from UW - Madison.

I also like to maintain a blog from time to time.
