I'm a professor in the systems group at Rice University's Department of Computer Science, specializing in computer security. My research interests include mobile code, wireless and smartphone security, and the security of electronic voting systems. I'm also a Rice Scholar at the Baker Institute for Public Policy.


Comp413: Distributed Program Construction. MWF 3-3:50pm, room TBD.

(previous courses I've taught)


All my papers are available online. You can see some of my talks. You may be interested in our tamper evident data structures, the Rice Wireless Localization Toolkit, VoteBox, or our Android extensions. My manuscript on rebooting the CS publication process has also been very popular, and I hope many benefit from my HOWTO: Protect Your Small Organization Against Electronic Adversaries.
