Hey, I’m Peter!

I’m a Ph.D. student at MIT CSAIL, advised by Prof. Mengjia Yan. My current research interests broadly lie in computer architecture and security, with a particular focus on quantifying and defending against architectural side-channels in the memory hierarchy.

Before coming to MIT, I received a bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from the University of British Columbia, where I worked with Prof. Mieszko Lis and Prof. Prashant Nair. I’ve also spent a number of years in industry, working on ASIC design/verification at Intel and Microsemi, and researching cryptographic key extraction schemes using novel Physical Unclonable Functions at Bosch.

When I’m not in the lab, you can probably find me scrambling up the Rockies, exploring urban forests, or canoeing down the Charles River with Elliot.
