Chad is a Ph.D. student in the SecLab at UCSB. His research primarily focuses on usable authentication and embedded system security. He has a rich background of working with both academic and real-world authentication mechanisms. He has previoviously worked on Grey, an authentication scheme that used phones and proof-carrying authentication to unlock doors and computers, during his M.S. at UNC-CH and has also led numerous red-teaming efforts (e.g., RFID cards and the DoD's common access card) as part of the technical research staff at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. He hopes to leverage his extensive knowledge of computer security to help make our world more secure and less burdensome.
