I am a Ph.D. student in the computer science department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). I am currently studying program obfuscation theory under Professor B├╝lent Yener. I earned a bachelors in computer science from University of Michigan-Dearborn from 2007 - 2011. Before that, I was a scout sniper in the United States Marine Corps.

I have a passion for computer security and teaching, so I try to combine the two as often as possible. I am the former Vice President of the RPISEC computer security club. I teach hacking seminars to the young women at Emma Willard High Schoool. I have created and advised independent studies for undergraduates here at RPI. I have also created and instructed the course CSCI 4972/6963 Malware Analysis at RPI. For the previous two summers, I have taught my two-day class: Introduction to Reverse-Engineering for interns and employees of MIT Lincoln Laboratory.
