I'm a Computer Science/CITP Assistant Professor at Princeton and an affiliate scholar at Stanford Law School's CIS. Earlier I was a post-doctoral researcher at Stanford and before that I did my Ph.D. at UT Austin. I study information privacy and security, and moonlight in tech policy.

My two main current threads of research are web privacy measurement and Bitcoin. I also work on privacy-preserving data publishing and write about ethical issues in software engineering.

Earlier, my doctoral research exposed the problems with data anonymization. My thesis, in a sentence, is that the level of anonymity that consumers expect—and companies claim to provide—in published or outsourced databases is fundamentally unrealizable.
