I am the privacy researcher at Brave Software, where I work on new ways to improve privacy and security on the web, and to measure the risk of new threats to Brave browser users.

Research Interests

I research web security and privacy, including browser hardening techniques and measuring how the growth of the Web API has impacted user privacy and security. I use this research to build access control systems for browser functionally and tools for deploying web applications that provide stronger privacy and security guarantees for users.
