I am a staff security engineer.
I solve problems at the intersection of information security, identity management, infrastructure operations, and user experience. Connecting these domains is critical for high-performing organizations. I develop fast-paced, highly collaborative teams with a strong mission and intellectual curiosity while translating between senior technical staff and business leadership. I thrive managing hands-on deployment of complex technology at scale and am comfortable in environments from startups to large enterprises.
I received my PhD in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. My dissertation, Online Identifiers in Everyday Life, focused on how the confluence of technical infrastructure and policy enables and constrains social behavior.
