I am a Network Scientist with the Internetwork Research Department at Raytheon BBN Technologies in Cambridge, MA.

I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2011 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) under Robin Kravets. During that time, I was a member of the Mobius Research group and affiliated with the Illinois Center for Wireless Systems (ICWS) and the Information Trust Institute (ITI). I also received a Masters Degree in Computer Science from UIUC in 2008. In 2006, I received a B.S. Magna Cum Laude in Computer Science and a B.A. in Mathematics from Bucknell University.

After graduating from UIUC, I spent a year at WINLAB, Rutgers University as a Postdoctoral Associate. I was also an intern at BBN Technologies during the summers of 2008 and 2009. My general research interests include finding practical and efficient solutions for routing, transport, and security in wireless MANETs and DTNs.
