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 policy.
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.
My more recent work has focused on what I call "privacy-conscious system design" in the areas of online behavioral advertising (including Do Not Track) and location privacy.
