The Travelling Cryptographer

and other tales

My training is in cryptography, security, and privacy. At various points and places, I've studied combinatorics, number theory, elliptic curves, medical device security, and anticensorship systems, and have developed a fondness for probability and statistics.

Theory aside, I'm concerned with the design and implementation of systems that are protective of security and privacy, and the role of cryptography in society and social change.


I offer consulting services in the applied crypto/security/privacy space. I am especially interested in working with non-profits. Contact me for details!
