Hello! I’m a software engineer working on the Google Chrome web browser. I lead Chrome’s usable security team. We build features in Chrome that help people make safe decisions on the web. We also conduct quantitative field research about how these features work and consult extensively with other teams as part of Chrome’s security review process. Some of my major Chrome projects have included: promoting HTTPS adoption, improving and resolving unnecessary HTTPS certificate errors, building tools to help developers roll out more secure configurations, and building new warnings for spoofy domains.
I received my bachelor’s degree from Stanford University and master’s degree from MIT (both in computer science). As a student, most of my research centered on deploying client-side cryptography in web applications. I still stay involved in the academic research community by publishing papers about my work on Chrome and serving on program committees.
Other places on the web you can find me:
- Chromium commits (and some older ones)
- GitHub (mostly used for web standards work these days)
- Stack Overflow
Outside of work, I live with my husband and one year old son in the San Francisco Bay Area. I enjoy baking, reading, yoga, and hiking in my free time.
