Introducing Dr. Peter Ney

Congratulations to Dr. Peter Ney for successfully defending his PhD Dissertation today. Peter is a research leader at the intersection of biology and computer security, as well also in the study of privacy and cell-site simulators. See, for example, his USENIX Security paper entitled “Computer Security, Privacy, and DNA Sequencing: Compromising Computers with Synthesized DNA, Privacy Leaks, and More“, as well as his PETS paper entitled “SeaGlass: A City-wide Cell-site Simulator Detection Network”. Peter will be staying at UW as a postdoc, working with both the UW Security and Privacy Research Lab and the Molecular Information Systems Lab (MISL).
