Hello! I'm a computer scientist and researcher interested in data privacy, measurement, and web tracking. I work as a privacy engineer at Mozilla, where I design and build privacy features for Firefox.
I received a PhD in Computer Science in the Security Group at Princeton University, where I worked in the Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP). My dissertation is on the Automated Discover of Privacy Violations on the Web. I've also spent time doing measurement work in the Office of Technology Research and Investigation (OTech) at the Federal Trade Commission.
Broadly, my research interests lie in the web privacy and web security space. I believe measurement and transparency are necessary conditions for a more private web, and I spend my time developing the tools and methodologies required to make that possible. I primarily study web tracking and its implications on user privacy and choice, government surveillance, and personalization. I've also dabbled in policy and privacy standards work during my time at Princeton. Check out my publications.
I'm the primary developer and maintainer of OpenWPM, a measurement framework that makes it significantly easier to run large scale crawls with real browsers.
