Welcome, Prof. David Kohlbrenner!

The UW Security and Privacy Research Lab is extremely excited to welcome new Allen School faculty member David Kohlbrenner as co-director of the lab!!

David’s research interests span software security, systems, and hardware architecture. Adaptations of his research have been deployed in Firefox, Chrome and the Linux kernel. His adversarial research discovered major vulnerabilities in popular web browsers, resulting in extensive changes to Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. He received his PhD at UCSD working with Hovav Shacham and then did a post-doc at Berkeley with Dawn Song.

We’re thrilled to have David as a colleague and excited about the new directions that he will help take the lab!
