Since the mid 1980s, my primary research interests have centered on data, and specifically data security, privacy, and storage. In the 1990s my emphasis was largely on data security, largely driven by my experiences working ailityt an Internet service provider on Martha's Vineyard. From 1998-2003 I worked on network monitoring---first telephone networks, then IP networks---at Sandstorm Enterprises. From 2003 through 2014 I worked mostly on the digital forensics of stored data. Since 2015 I have mostly worked on privacy issues, exploring de-identification at NIST and now differential privacy at the US Census Bureau. I also have strong interest in usability.
As of April 2019, I was working on these specific research projects:
- Completing NIST 800-188, de-identifying government datasets.
- A paper on the philosophy of differential privacy
