I am an assistant professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. I have a courtesy appointment in the Computer Science Department and am a part of CyLab. My group’s research focus is on the security and privacy implications of data transparency and sharing. As part of this focus, my research interests span the algorithmic and theoretical foundations of distributed systems, machine learning, and privacy-enhancing technologies. I am also a co-director of CyLab Africa alongside Assane Gueye.
