Hi! 🔆

I am a fourth year PhD student in Computer Science at The University of Chicago. My primary research area is database systems and specifically data privacy. My advisor is Raul Castro Fernandez and I am also part of the ChiData team.

I received my bachelor’s degree from Franklin & Marshall College, advised by Erin Talvitie. Before coming to UChicago, I worked as a software engineer at Zilliz on Milvus.
