Welcome!

I’m a lecturer in the Computer Science department here at Dartmouth College. I’m also a Distinguished Research Staff Member at IBM’s Thomas J. Watson Research Center where I’ve been working since 1984, mostly in Security & Privacy.

I’m married to Elaine R. Palmer, a remarkable security nerd also at IBM Research. We have three boys aged 21, 18, and 18, and two looney Labradoodles.
