About me

After graduating from Brown University, I joined the Privacy Engineering team at WMF in April 2021. I recently moved to Denver, CO, where I enjoy hiking, cooking, running, and playing music.

My work

My background is in cryptography and theoretical computer science, with a focus on building secure data systems and ensuring that our statistical models work the way we think they do. At WMF, I've been focusing on putting differential privacy techniques into production, algorithmic transparency and accountability, and managing/mitigating privacy risk.

However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
