My thesis research focuses on Privacy and Security, with Natural Language Processing (NLP) as a concurrent interest of mine.

Proudly advised by Professor Thomas Ristenpart, I have concentrated on End-to-End Encryption applications in my security research. My research aims to enhance online community governance and privacy while balancing anti-abuse.

In my NLP work, fortunately guided by Professor Claire Cardie, my focus is on improving Information Extraction and model interpretability, particularly when inputs are at the document level.
