I'm a software engineer with a lifelong passion for solving interesting problems with technology. I am currently a graduate student at Tufts University, where I will be graduating in May 2016 with my MS in Computer Science. My current areas of interest are distributed systems, cloud computing and computer networks.
I've been fortunate to have worked for a variety of companies in several different industries, and in doing so have utilized many languages, tools, and frameworks on the job. Over the years I've had the opportunity to design and build a diverse set of interesting products, which include:
As part of my Masters program, this spring I am currently participating in a self-directed research project in the field of computer networking. In this project I am investigating how cloud computing and global data center infrastructure can be used to augment anonymous communication networks (ACNs), specifically the Tor network, with the goal of improving connection latency and path resilience.
While I am comfortable working across the stack and have previously worked primarily in full-stack roles, going forward I am especially excited about working in one or more of the following areas:
