I am a Visiting Assistant Professor working as a resident fellow at the Yale Information Society Project. (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 related to digital public infrastructure for self-hosted services, beneficial bots, and anonymous communications systems designed for quantum networks.
I have previously advised student projects on automatic filtering of video content for the presence of minors (we presented on a development of this work at AAAI 2019, see below), 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.
Talks, Papers, Etc.
