I am a PhD candidate 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.
I am not teaching Information Privacy with Applications this Fall. If you are interested in learning about Privacy Technology and security, please reach out by email about independent research credit. (The Information Privacy course will be back Fall 2021).
