Computer Science Master's Student at UC San Diego.


About Me

I will be applying to Ph.D. programs in Fall 2023.

I am a Master’s Student in Computer Science at UC San Diego, broadly studying the security and performance of networks, co-advised by Geoff Voelker and Stefan Savage at Sysnet. Primarily, I study how to detect attacker reconnaissance on enterprise networks. I received my B.S. in Mathematics-Computer Science from UCSD in 2022. In my free time I enjoy listening to music, dancing, reading, writing, and hiking. My sister, who also does networking research, is on the faculty job market this Fall 2023. You can find her website here: Liz Izhikevich.
