Security and Privacy Research Lab

I am an assistant professor in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering and an adjunct assistant professor in the Electrical Engineering Department and the Human Centered Design and Engineering Department at the University of Washington. I am also affiliated with the UW Tech Policy Lab.

My research focuses on computer security and privacy. My interests are broad within that domain, but I am particularly excited about designing and building systems that address security and privacy challenges faced by end users of existing and emerging technologies.

I am currently the program co-chair for USENIX Security 2020 (and previously for USENIX Enigma 2018 and 2019).

I am the recipient of an NSF CAREER Award (2017), an Emerging Leader Alumni Award from the UT Austin College of Natural Sciences (2017), an MIT Technology Review Innovators Under 35 Award (2017), and a Google Security and Privacy Research Award (2017).

Some directions I'm particularly interested in at the moment (but not an exhaustive list!) include:
