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 Network and Distributed Systems Security Laboratory (NDS2) 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).
