Biography

I am a Professor in the School of Information at UC Berkeley, with an affiliate appointment in EECS. My research interests are in bio-sensory computing (brainwave authentication, human factors in wearable computing) and information economics and policy (network economics, peer production, security and privacy).

I co-direct the BioSENSE Lab, a multidisciplinary research team studying the application potentials and stewardship challenges of ubiquitous bio-sensing technologies. I am also affiliated with the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC), the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS), and the Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technology (TRUST).

Something few people know about me
I worked for Jerry Yang before he became a household name, when we were both graduate students at Stanford. Unfortunately, I was working for him as a grader for an intro VLSI course in Electrical Engineering that he was TA'ing, rather than as an early employee of his Yahoo! startup.
