Hi! I'm Elijah and I am a PhD student at the Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science

I’m interested in usable security and privacy, particularly for marginalized groups. I have previously published papers measuring robocalls and scams on YouTube. I have also done work on measuring how well websites provide account remediation advice. Finally, I have work in progress on the way developers speak about and use gender data. For more information on all of these publications and my other experience, see my CV.

From a personal perspective, I completed a B.S. in Computer Engineering and a B.A. in History from North Carolina State University in 2021. I was in marching and basketball pep band for all four years of college. I love watching football and, along with NC State, I am a fan of the Tennessee Titans. Finally, I also play video games, with the redstone of Mojang’s game Minecraft inspiring my interest in logic and computers.

Interested in collaborating or anyhting else I’ve said? Feel free to reach out on my social media or via email.
