I'm the founder of TrueBit, a scalable verification solution for blockchains. I've held postdoc positions with Prateek Saxena at NUS, Trent Jaeger at Penn State and Wolfgang Merkle at Universität Heidelberg. Previously I have served as a US Fulbright fellow to Israel and to Hungary. From 2008-2010 I held a research staff position at CCR-La Jolla, and before that I worked at the RAND Corporation. I fulfilled my dissertation research as a CIC Traveling Scholar at the University of Chicago computer science department under the supervision of Lance Fortnow. I earned a PhD in mathematics from Indiana University in 2007, a DM in composition from the IU School of Music in 2004, and a BA in guitar performance and mathematics from Pomona College in 2000.
