About Me

I do R&D S&E, Cybersecurity (Research & Development, Science & Engineering) in California. I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Women’s Studies from the University of Michigan in 2018. I graduated with my Master of Science in Computer Science from New York University in 2020. I completed a Master’s thesis which was advised by Brendan Dolan-Gavitt.

I have a variety of interests and hobbies outside the world of technology. Currently my greatest enjoyment is my involvement in the EDM community. Aside from that, I love nature, hiking, gardening, meditation, and my cat Linux. Feel free to reach me on any of my socials!
