I am a fourth year PhD student in Software Engineering at the Institute for Software Research in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. I am co-advised by Bill Scherlis and Jonathan Aldrich. My research interests fall within the scope of security, semantics-based methods, evidence-based software assurance, multi-faceted software defense strategies, and techniques for preventing software vulnerabilities.

I attended the University of Portland for two years before transferring to Washington State University (GO COUGS!) where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering in 2010. I've maintained an affiliation with The Boeing Company as a Security Engineer for the last six years.
