I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University. My research brings a large-scale, empirical approach to the study of security, abuse, and misinformation on the Internet. I build systems to measure complex networked ecosystems, and I use the resulting perspective to understand online behavior, uncover weaknesses, architect more resilient protocols/platforms, and guide policy decisions.
