About Me

As of December 2017, I am a Research Scientist at Snap Inc. in Venice, CA. Feel free to reach out if you are interested in possible collaborations or internships relating to data-driven security research!

I defended my PhD thesis in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. I was fortunate to have been advised by Professor Christos Faloutsos.

I received my B.S. in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science at North Carolina State University. My undergraduate research was supervised by Professor Nagiza Samatova.

Research Interests

My current research interests entail fraud/anomaly detection in social media and internet services, and broadly large-scale data analysis with applications to security.
