I’m working as a staff security engineer.

I solve problems at the intersection of information security, identity management, and user experience, and translate between the most senior technologists and business leadership. Connecting these domains is critical for high performing organizations and I thrive managing hands-on deployment of complex technology at scale while improving user experience.

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.
