I’m a computer science Ph.D. student at Georgia Tech, where I work with Dr. Ellen Zegura in the Computing and Society Lab.
My primary interests are computer networking and computing for social good. Currently, I’m focusing on finding ways to measure and improve Internet access for underserved groups. Check out my projects below to learn more.

CellWatch (Aug 2022 - Present): CellWatch is an Android app for collecting network performance measurements. We’re building the app to be compliant with the FCC’s challenge process so that consumers can use it to prove that they don’t have sufficient cellular coverage. In the long-term, we also hope to include diverse measurement capabilities in the app so that it will be useful to a wide range of networking researchers. [...]
Mobile network measurement route planning (Sep 2022 - Present): To understand where cellular coverage is insufficient, we need connectivity and performance measurements collected from real cellular devices in the wild. However, collecting such measurements is time consuming. As a result, we’re using existing datasets – such as the FCC’s mobile coverage data, Ookla’s mobile performance data, and OpenStreetMap’s maps – to assess the value and cost of collecting additional measurements in a given area. This data is then used to plan routes that maximize the value of the measurements collected while minimizing the cost to collect them.
