PhD Research

I am a first year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at UC Irvine. I am a member of TrussLab, supervised by Professor Ardalan Amiri Sani.
At the moment, I'm researching System Security through Continuous Fuzzing.


At UC Irvine I majored in Computer Science and specialized in Networked Systems. I received my B.S. Magna Cum Laude in 2021.

Before that, I graduated with honors from Diablo Valley College in 2019. I triple-majored in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics, receiving an Associate of Science degree in each field.


Tangent to my current research, I am also interested in Cryptography and the broad realm of Computer & Network Security.
Tangent to anything academic, I am interested in video games, music, and various other computer related hobbies.
