I am a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo, where I have been since January 2009. For 3 years prior to coming to Waterloo, I was principal research staff in the Security and Privacy Technology Lab at Motorola's corporate R&D Labs in Schaumburg.

I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Purdue University, where my advisor was Ninghui Li. Gene Spafford has also been a significant influence. Before returning to Purdue in 2003 for the Ph.D., I spent about 6 years in industry, mostly in software development. It included about 4 years in Silicon Valley. I have a B.Sc.(Hons.) in Computer Science from Dalhousie University, where my honours project supervisor was Patrick Keast. Before that, I attended the Chinmaya Vidyalaya, at its old campus in Ernakulam, near the Ernakulathappan Temple.

I research information security, with work over the years in authorization and access control, cryptographic key transport, secure payments, usable security, and security and reliability of computer hardware. My work tends to be a mix of fundamental and applied aspects.
