Currently looking for summer 2020 internship opportunities in the Unites States, Sweden, Ireland and the Middle East.
Fascinated with codes and ciphers since childhood, I was infatuated with information security long before I knew what to call it. Equipped with a theoretical computer science education from Princeton University and practical know-how from internships and CTF challenges, today I am on the path to becoming a highly skilled information security professional.
Sometimes, I write technical blog posts.
Under the likes of Professors Brian Kernighan in FRS127: Internet Privacy and Security and Arvind Narayanan in COS432: Information Security, I have grown considerably at Princeton. Pursuing a BA in Computer Science, I have a firm understanding of concepts such as analysis, algorithms and data structures as well as low-level systems engineering. Beyond that, Princeton has also equipped me with skills like technical writing and managing independent projects. Additionally, I have taken the opportunity to learn Arabic during my undergraduate years.
2019 (study abroad)
University of Edinburgh
During my two-semester study abroad I was able to pursue courses not available in the Princeton curriculum such as a graduate seminar on the Internet of Things with a focus on security, systems and the cloud. At Edinburgh, I also furthered my theoretical understanding of wired and wireless networking as well as discrete mathematics.
ProCivitas High School
Already interested in Computer Science in high school, I was the driving force behind adding the course Computer Programming 1 to the natural sciences curriculum and serving as a TA in the same course. For this, and for my involvement in student government, I graduated with Honors for Best Service for the School. During my high school years I also had my first experiences with entrepreneurship, creating short event films and commercials for several clients in the city along with two friends.
