My main areas of interest within computer engineering are computer networks, particularly layers 2 and 3 of the TCP/IP stack and Software-Defined Networking, (which I am doing my Master's project on) and cybersecurity. Computer and network security are critical so I am grateful that I have experience with them that I can apply to any system I build. My other interests, even though I have little experience in them, are in the fields of distributed systems, cloud computing, and AI.
In graduate school, my plan is to continue working on the DSMR project with Professor Brad Smith while taking courses to augment my knowledge in general of the field of computer science and engineering.
Outside of academia, I enjoy snowboarding, boating and watersports, rock climbing, and mountain biking. My indoor hobbies include video games, tabletop games, board games, and card games (all with friends, of course).
