Computer privacy - the intersection of privacy and storage systems.

What do you like best about UC Santa Cruz?
So much! I hate winter. Campus is beautiful - I like hiking in upper campus and enjoying the redwoods. My lab is 50% women and my advisors are great. I like that we're so close to Silicon Valley. I also like how politically involved the campus is. I'm active in the TA union and it's been great seeing student workers have a voice.
