I am a full-time software engineer at Apple, working on low-code tools as part of Claris. Previously, I was an engineer at Censys. I have an undergrad from the University of Michigan, where I participated in election security research under the direction of Professor Alex Halderman. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and driving on road trips.
I am currently working on writing backend microservices in Go for Claris Studio, Apple's newest offering for the B2B low-code development market. Claris Studio enables organizations to collect, view, and analyze business data.
At Censys, I wrote Go code to scan and store metadata about IPv4 and IPv6 hosts with open ports on the Internet. I have also had the opportunity to work on the Certificates v2 dataset. This data powers the Censys search frontend, BigQuery tables for enterprise and researchers, and the ASM product.
I began working in the election security field before my senior year of high school, when I had the chance to work on a security usability paper that earned the Best Student Paper Award at IEEE Security and Privacy 2020. Additionally, I have been fortunate to work with Kevin Chang to speak at DEF CON 27 in regards to voter files and voter registration security. There, I was also part of the Voting Machine Hacking Village, where I worked with my colleague, Henry Meng, and Oregon State undergraduates to discover vulnerabilities in the Dominion ImageCast Precinct ballot tabulator. More recently, I co-authored a paper on the efficacy of logic and accuracy (L&A) testing across the United States.
During my undergrad, I've been able to take some interesting courses. I've highlighted a few here along with some group projects completed for those classes.
