I do academic research in computer science (cryptography/security) and
related law and policy.
I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at Cornell Tech’s
Digital Life Initiative,
hosted by Helen Nissenbaum and James Grimmelmann.
My work is supported by a 2021 Computing Innovation Fellowship.
I received my J.D. at Harvard Law School.
Before studying law,
I completed my Ph.D. in computer science at MIT, advised by Shafi Goldwasser. During my Ph.D. studies, I was in the Cryptography and Information Security group within the Theory of Computation group at MIT,
and also affiliated with MIT’s Internet Policy Research Initiative
and with the Digital Currency Initiative (DCI) at the
MIT Media Lab.
I was a Fellow and then an Affiliate at the Berkman-Klein
Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University,
and between 2018–20
I also did postdoctoral research at the MIT Media Lab’s DCI.
I received my B.A. in Computer Science at the University of Cambridge.
Guide to Security Research Legal Risks.
30 Oct 2020: I’m excited to announce A
Researcher's Guide to Some Legal Risks of Security Research, authored by me
and Kendra Albert, jointly published by the Cyberlaw Clinic at Harvard Law
School and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)!

and they are the primary publication outlets.
In law, journals are the primary publication outlets.
