Howdy! I'm Will.

I’m a PhD student at UCLA in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. I do research on cryptographic methods for privacy-preserving machine learning.

Things I’ve worked on

Currently I’m working on developing new secure multiparty computation protocols to make privacy-preserving model training more efficient.

About me

I graduated in May 2020 with a M.Sc. and B.Sc. in applied mathematics, and a B.Sc. in computer science. During my time at CU I did research in Stephen Becker’s lab, where I focused on randomized algorithms (especially LSH) for large-scale data analysis.

I enjoy writing in my free time; check out my (slowly-updated) notes.
