My name is Christopher A. Wood. I work on the Cloudflare Research team, focusing on security and privacy enhancing technologies. I also contribute to open Internet standards in various capacities, including co-chair of the IETF TLS Working Group, IETF MASQUE Working Group, and IRTF Privacy Enhancements and Assessments Research Group.
Before Cloudflare, I worked on transport security, privacy, and cryptography engineering at Apple. In the past, I was a core developer of CCNx in the Computer Science Laboratory at PARC (Palo Alto Research Center). I also previously worked at Intel, L-3 Communications, and other small software firms.
I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from UCI in 2017, where I focused on network security and privacy under Gene Tsudik. A NSF Graduate Research Fellowship supported my graduate studies at UCI. I received a B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science and B.S. in Software Engineering from RIT in 2013, where Stanislaw Radziszowski advised my graduate studies in applied cryptography.
