About Me

I am a 3rd year Computer Science PhD Department Fellow at UC San Diego, broadly studying the security and performance of networks, co-advised by Geoff Voelker and Stefan Savage at Sysnet. I received my M.S. in Computer Science from UCSD in 2024 and B.S. in Mathematics-Computer Science from UCSD in 2022. My sister, Liz Izhikevich, is an Assistant Professor at UCLA ECE.
