Software Engineer

I'm an Engineer and Researcher at Meta supporting anti-abuse initiatives. I currently work in the Actor Attribution team, helping to ensure that owners of compromised accounts are able to recover their accounts effectively. Before joining Meta I completed my PhD at the University of London under the supervision of Profs. Lorenzo Cavallaro, Johannes Kinder, and Kenneth Paterson.

My research focuses on the application of machine learning for security in adversarial settings, where attackers attempt to evade detection and measurement, and has been published at top academic venues.
