I am a security researcher with a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan.
My doctoral research focused on understanding Nation-State Attackers such as the NSA and GCHQ while also measuring Internet-scale vulnerabilities and attack-surfaces.
In my graduate education, I was advised by Prof. J. Alex Halderman and funded by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
Currently, I am working on Google's Production Security team in Mountain View, California.
My work-related responsibilities focus on identifying, monitoring, and reducing Insider Threats as well as improving Google's overall infrastructure security.
Outside of work, I am still actively researching Internet-scale computer security issues as well as working towards improving the security properties of widely used protocols and mechanisms.
