Here's the usual stuff...


Update: I am now a Post-doc at UC San Diego.

Hi I'm Jonny, a Ph.D. candidate in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at UC Santa Barbara. At UCSB, I reside in the ArchLab working with my advisor Tim Sherwood, where I work on several projects that blend computer architecture and security together. One topic of interest of mine is using emerging technologies, such as 3D integration, to provide high speed security functions. Some examples include mitigations for side channel attacks, and very high-throughput/secure cryptography. I also want to work on Starcraft 2, but we can't find any funding for that.

Here is my contact email: [mylastname]@ece.ucsb.edu
