I’m an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science department at Princeton University.

Until recently, I was working with David Mazières in the Secure Computer Systems group and Phil Levis in the Stanford Information Networks Group.

I’m generally interested in distributed systems, operating systems, security, privacy, programming languages and good will towards people. I’m currently spending most of time working on a new secure operating system for low-memory microcontrollers called TockOS.

Way back when, in December 2010 I graduated from the University of Washington with an MSc in Computer Science and a BSc in Computer Science and Economics. On the computer science side of things, I worked with Roxana Geambasu, Hank Levy, Tadayoshi Kohno and Arvind Krishnamurthy on web privacy and distributed systems. On the economics side of things I worked on writing exams with as little preparation as possible. In hind sight I should have taken classes in something useful instead. Maybe history.
