My research broadly spans security and privacy. A few of the research questions I’m now exploring or interested in are:
- Honey objects: How can we create fake data that deceive adversaries, and how can we deploy them to defend real-world systems?
- Post-privacy systems: If privacy erodes to the point of indefensibility, how can we enforce fair use of data and fair decision-making?
- Virtual currency: Bitcoin is intriguing, but just one point in a large design space. How might we make virtual currencies better and more relevant to ordinary users?
- Cloud security: How can cloud providers best provide security for their tenants? How can tenants best protect themselves from threats in the cloud?
- Security, privacy, and physiology: I’m interested broadly in data security perspectives on biometrics, neuroscience, and medical data.

I am taking on new Ph.D. students, and happily welcome enquiries. Only students already enrolled in the Cornell Computer Science department, however, are eligible to join my group in NYC. (In order to work with me or any other faculty member in the CS field as a Ph.D. student, you must first be accepted into the Cornell CS program.)
