Hello! I received my Computer Science M.S.E. degree from Princeton University in June 2013 and I am currently working at Microsoft in Redmond, WA. I was born in Bogota, Colombia, and lived there until I decided to go to Princeton for my graduate studies. I attained two Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degrees from the Universidad de los Andes: one in Civil Engineering (Magna Cum Laude distinction*) and another one in Systems and Computing Engineering (Summa Cum Laude distinction**). My research is mostly related to Computer Networks and Security, and I was affiliated with the PALMS Security Group (Department of Electrical Engineering) throughout my Master's degree studies.
