I'm currently a first year Computer Science Ph.D. student in the PDOS group at MIT, supported by an MIT Lemelson Presidential Fellowship. I like to build efficient hardware-accelerated systems with strong security and privacy guarantees. I'm especially interested in exploring the security implications of emerging heterogeneous hardware and using it to improve the energy efficiency of real-world privacy-preserving systems.
Previously, I was an undergraduate student in the Turing Scholars Honors Program at the University of Texas at Austin. During my time there, I was fortunate to do some work on GPU timing side-channels and accelerator virtualization for OS kernels under the superb guidance of Dr. Emmett Witchel and Dr. Christopher J Rossbach.
Outside of research I'm an avid soccer player, a jazz pianist, and a proud Mexican immigrant. If you want to kick a ball around, jam, or make some guacamole, send me an email!
