I am currently pursuing a PhD in computer science at Purdue University under Dr. Cristina Nita-Rotaru. My research interests include Software Defined Networking (SDN), distributed systems, network protocol design and analysis, and network security. I am a member of the Dependable and Secure Distributed Systems Lab (DS^2) and the Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security (CERIAS).

My masters and undergraduate work was in computer science at Ohio University. I was a member of Dr. Shawn Ostermann's Internetworking Research Group (IRG) there. We worked with NASA to maintain and improve the Interplanetary Overlay Network (ION), a software package for communication with satellites in deep space. My masters thesis examined the performance of the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP).
