my primary research is at the intersection of machine learning and security. i study settings where an intelligent adversary has limited access to perturb data fed into a learned or learning system. the goal of my research is two-fold: to detect attacks and to build/augment learning systems to be more robust to undetected attacks.

七星彩海南私彩软件in addition, i develop methods for inferring properties of the underlying sensors (whether trustworthy or not) and incorporating that knowledge into the data analysis pipeline.


i teach topics in ai, machine learning, and security ranging from the highly practical to the purely theoretical. i aim to span the same spectrum in teaching introductory courses as well.

七星彩海南私彩软件before coming to amherst, i taught computer science and public speaking/debate professionally in salt lake city, ut and madison, wi. as a volunteer, i gave guest lectures for courses from the wisconsin center for academically talented youth (wcaty, a non-profit organization offering courses for advanced students in grades 2 through 12) and taught locksport (recreational lockpicking and related physical security topics) through sector67 in madison.
