I work on the cryptography engineering team at Apple, a smaller and highly specialized group embedded within the Security Engineering and Architecture (SEAR) organization. I also contribute to open Internet standards in various capacities, previously chairing the TLS and MASQUE working groups. I am currently a member of the Internet Architecture Board.

Before Apple, I worked on the Cloudflare Research team, focusing on security and privacy enhancing technologies. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California Irvine, advised by Gene Tsudik, and I received my B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science at the Rochester Institute of Technology, studying under Stanislav Radziszowski.

Away from keyboard I spend time running outside and playing at the dog park with my french bulldog (Gustav). I occassionally take pictures while doing both activities. Some of them are on display in the gallery.
