I am a sixth-year PhD student in Computer Science at Duke University, working with Landon Cox. My research focus is on enhancing privacy and trustworthiness of mobile devices, systems and services.

YouProve is a system we built at Duke to help verify the authenticity of photos and audio recorded by smartphones. Check out a video demo of YouProve. I also helped develop TaintDroid, a tool for monitoring how Android apps use privacy-sensitive information in real-time. More info and source code for TaintDroid at
