This is from an oddly detailed report card I got in the fifth grade:

report card

It took me a few career changes to seriously pursue my "science investigations", but that's what I do today as a doctoral student and human rights advocate. My science investigations mainly focus on privacy, free expression, computer security, and the intersection of the aforementioned with social movements, business, and law.

My first peer-reviewed journal article, "Privacy Implications of Health Information Seeking on the Web", is in the March 2015 issue of Communications of the Association for Computing Machinery. I made a video explaining the research.

I have other interesting projects on the way, but they are going through review. Review is slow.

I wrote the software platform webXray for privacy researchers and I also got into the habit of writing screen savers on long bus trips.

My research has been featured in Vice, Fast Company, The Times of India, San Jose Mercury News, Al Jazeera, The Atlantic, Al Jazeera, Fast Company, New York Magazine, and other places.
