The Tor Project (2016-Present)
Tor is an volunteer-run Internet anonymity service which routes traffic through three servers in an “onion” design.
In the past, I was a major Core Tor contributor, focusing on Onion Services and IPv6 support. I have also contributed to other areas in Tor including exit policy configuration, entry guard optimizations, and FreeBSD support.
More recently, I focused on documentation, which can be seen here.
I also run Tor relays and exits, and have done so since 2014. My relays can be seen at Tor Relay Status. I am a top Tor exit relay operator, with 2.5-5% of total exit capacity.
The FreeBSD Project (2014-2023)
FreeBSD is a general-purpose Unix-like operating system. I was a FreeBSD user from 2012-2022 and contributor from 2014-2023 in various areas.
I was a FreeBSD Ports committer, from being a contributor from 2014 back in my senior year of high school.
Outside of Ports, I worked on the FreeBSD networking, firewall, and routing stack. One key set of patches was that I helped make IPFW’s NAT implementation aware of RFC 6598 (Carrier Grade NAT) subnets.
I also helped add support for Intel’s Whiskey Lake (8th Gen) and Tiger Lake (11th Gen), both used in multiple generations of high-end PC laptops like the HP Spectre x360.
Commits I was involved in can be seen at:
NYU Tandon Projects
Keep in mind that I am no longer involved with these projects as I have graduated NYU.
Miscellaneous Personal Software Projects
I have also written toy software projects, all of which can be seen on GitHub. Most, if not all are abandoned.
