I'm a fifth year Computer Science PhD candidate at Princeton University, where I'm a CITP Graduate Student Fellow and a member of the Privacy and Security Research Group. I work with Professor Arvind Narayanan. During my time at Princeton, I spent two summers hacking on Firefox as a security engineering intern at Mozilla. I also spent a summer doing measurement work in the Office of Technology Research and Investigation (OTech) at the Federal Trade Commission.
Broadly, my research interests lie in the web privacy and web security space. I believe measurement and transparency are necessary conditions for a more private web, and I spend my time developing the tools and methodologies required to make that possible. I primarily study web tracking and its implications on user privacy and choice, government surveillance, and personalization. I've also dabbled in policy and privacy standards work during my time at Princeton. Check out my publications.
I'm the primary developer and maintainer of OpenWPM, a measurement framework that makes it significantly easier to run large scale crawls with real browsers.
