Academic Appointments

Research Associate Professor of Computer Science

I am a Research Associate Professor of Computer Science at Dartmouth College. I am interested in all aspects of cyber security, including Unix and Linux kernel security, detection and reverse engineering of malware (primarily of kernel and boot-stage, in Linux and Windows), wireless networking, digital radio, and visualizations of security-related information. I am interested in identifying and eliminating the root causes of software vulnerabilities, and I believe that this requires connecting state-of-the-art hacking with fundamental problems of computer science. I believe that edge-of-the-art hacking has developed into a distinct discipline of computer science, even though not formally recognized as such, and that studying it is indispensable for building future computing systems we could finally trust.
