  • Pronouns: he, him, his

Currently, I am a PhD student at the University of Pittsburgh, Department of Computer Science. I received my BS in Computer Science from the University of Pittsburgh and am pursuing my PhD from PITT as well. I am currently specializing in computer security and privacy during my PhD studies and hope to become a professor after receiving my PhD since I love to teach!
I am originally from the Pittsburgh area and I hope to one day own a house here. In my spare time I love to read mystery and LGBTQIA+ books, cook new recipes or tweak old ones, visit Phipps Conservatory (especially the orchid room), and take walks through Schenley Park.
