My research interests are widespread across security, networking and systems. Many of my projects focus on e-crime (fraud, abuse) and user-centric web/network security measurement.
I am interested in understanding how users encounter compromise, what happens to their stuff (computers, email accounts, credit cards, etc.) after it's stolen, and how we can better protect those users from exposure in the first place. This encompasses topics including the WebPKI, and generally malware, spam, social engineering and the human elements affecting security and privacy.
I completed my MS in Computer Science at UCSD in July of 2013. I also hold a BS with honors in Computer Science from the wonderful Harvey Mudd College.

I have a number of side projects working on making the internet safer and more private. I am also one of the people behind Chez Bob. When not on a computer, I take portrait and environmental photographs, go hiking, and in general enjoy the giant playground we all live in.
