My main area of interest within computer engineering is computer networks, particularly layers 2 and 3 of the TCP/IP stack and Software-Defined Networking, which I am doing a project on (see "DSMR" under the "Papers and Projects" section). I think network security is critical so I am grateful that I have experience with it. Although I have little experience in them, I do have interest 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, but I must admit that I do not do any of them nearly as often as I would like. My indoor hobbies include video games, tabletop roleplaying games, tabletop war games, board games, and card games (all with friends).
