It has been a very fun and enlightening experience working at the Stanford Security Lab this summer. I’ve learned tons of different things, and noted various topics in which I have to become better versed in with security and privacy as a whole. I can only hope that the drive I currently have sticks with me as I wrap up this last year of undergrad and prepare myself for grad school.
Just as a quick summary, here are various articles in which I either did research on, wrote, or was featured in along with project websites in which the work was related to (most notably, the Tracking the Trackers series):
- Tracking the Trackers: Early Results
- Tracking the Trackers: To Catch a History Thief
- Tracking the Trackers: The AdChoices Icon
- Tracking the Trackers: Microsoft Advertising
- FourthParty: A New Approach to Web Measurement (1, 2)
- Do Not Track Universal Web Tracking Opt Out
- Consumer Watchdog: Unfair and Deceptive online tracking
- Wall Street Journal: Latest in Web Tracking: Stealthy ‘Supercookies’
Just wanted to give a shout-out to Jonathan Mayer, Stanford C.S. PhD candidate, for being an awesome mentor this summer. Also shout-outs to John Mitchel for being my sponsoring faculty along with the NSF funded Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technologies (TRUST) in Cyber Security and Trustworthy Systems for granting me this wonderful opportunity.
Hopefully I will be able to update this blog with news of grad schools that I get into!
