I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science at UC Santa Barbara. I am advised by Elizabeth Belding and working in the MOMENT lab. Prior to attending UCSB, I worked as a Network Test Engineer at Green Hills Software. I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA.
My dissertation uses network analysis techniques to inform the design of user-centric networked systems that operate in resource-limited environments.
Dissertation (working title): Community-based Networks for Challenged Environments -- Characterizing Opportunities and Designing Solutions
