I am a third year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at CMU. My
advisor is Robert Harper
interested in programming languages, formal verification, and mathematical logic.
As an undergraduate, I worked with Greg Morrisett
as part of the GoNative
project. I spent the summer of 2014
as an intern at MPI-SWS
, advised by Derek Dreyer
and Viktor Vafeiadis
. In the summer of
2013, I interned at Oracle Labs
. The summer before that, I was an intern at Inria
as a member of the Gallium
team under the supervision of Xavier Leroy
