Hi. My name is Amit, and I build systems.

I’m an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science department at Princeton University, where I’m affiliated with the SNS group.

My research centers around the idea that well designed secure systems empower developers and their applications, rather than restrict them. This usually manifests in building practical and secure operating systems, embedded systems, distributed systems, and often leverages tools from programming languages.

I’m currently hacking mostly on Tock, a secure operating system for low-resource (think 64kB of RAM) Internet of Things devices, and using operating system schedulers to eliminate timing channels. But if you can fit “extensible”, “secure”, and “system” into a sentence you have my attention.
