I am a Principal Lead Program Manager in the Security and Cryptography team in Microsoft Research's Technology organization.  I have been in applied research teams in Microsoft for 10 years, on projects such as the "Venice" Mesh Networking incubation, a hardware project, and most recently a variety of security and cryptography projects. 

Prior to joining MSR, I worked on visualization and management tools for IT in Windows and in Visio.  I've shipped 10 products as a PM or Lead PM, including some interesting work in TCP/IP network discovery, agent-less management of distributed systems, and multi-layered network and distributed systems visualization.  My career started in IT, where I worked for 13 years designing and managing networks and distributed systems, including 4 years at Boeing as an Architect on the 777 program. 

I have a B.A. in History from Stanford University.
