I am a PhD student in the Information program at The University of Arizona (that's me on the left).
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will
not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius
will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not;
the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and
determination alone are omnipotent.
-- Calvin Coolidge
Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.
-- Pudd'nhead Wilson (Following the Equator)
This semester I am actively working on projects on automated privacy technologies (in collaboration with several students) and on notice technology to combat industrialized shoulder-surfing. I am not actively working on sensitive surveys and transparency for data brokers (though I am still interested in these areas).
I have previously advised student projects on automatic filtering of video content for the presence of minors, and on the security properties of the Katzenpost mixnet.
I try to always have interesting opportunities to offer graduate and undergraduate students who want to work on privacy enhancing technologies. If you are interested, please contact me.
