This page contains information about Bryce Boe, a Computer Science Ph.D. candidate at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Previously a member of the Computer Security Group under advisement from Christopher Kruegel and Giovanni Vigna, Bryce is now working with Diana Franklin in the area of Computer Science Education specific to Automated Feedback Systems. Bryce was twice the Computer Science department’s Lead Teaching Assistant during the 2009/2010 school year, and during the 2011/2012 school year. Bryce chaired the 2010 Graduate Student Workshop on Computing (GSWC) and co-chaired the 2009 GSWC.
A San Diego native, Bryce, received his Bachelors of Science in Computer Science from UCSB in 2008. During his many years at UCSB, Bryce has gone from a minimal knowledge of HTML to being quite the hacker, meanwhile developing a taste for good beer. He competed four times in the Southern California Regional Programming Competition placing 5th in 2006. He also competed with team Shellphish in the 2009 and 2010 DEFCON CTF Competition. Bryce’s favorite programming languages are python for pretty much everything, and C for those times when it’s necessary.
When Bryce isn’t busy with academics, he can be found running for beer with the Hash House Harriers of Sant’o Barbara, playing intramural volleyball with other graduate students, hiking the phenomenal trails that Santa Barbara has to offer (see panoramas), or scuba diving in the Channel Islands with sea lions.
