I am a PhD student at the University of California, San Diego in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. I am advised by KC Claffy and Alex Snoeren. My research interest is in Internet Measurement and Interdomain Routing. My current research focuses on measurement-based geolocation of IP addresses and the ecosystem of Internet address space movement. I work at the Sysnet and CNS research groups at Computer Science and Engineering, and at CAIDA at the San Diego Supercomputer Center.

Before starting my PhD, I obtained my B.S. in Computer Science here at UC San Diego with a minor in Organic Chemistry (wet labs are fun!). I also studied Spanish and Dutch for my interest in human languages.
