7/26/2018; 3 minutes

David Kohlbrenner is a PhD student at UC San Diego working with Sysnet
and CryptoSec advised by Hovav Shacham. His research focuses on how
hardware design impacts software security. David's work bridges gaps
in understanding between hardware and software to build systems that
are deserving of trust. As part of his research efforts, he has worked
extensively with web browsers to demonstrate new vulnerabilities and
integrate new defenses. Previously, David received a B.S. in Computer
Science from Carnegie Mellon University and co-founded the San
Diego-based startup Somerset Recon. In 2018, David graduated from UC
San Diego and is now a postdoc at UC Berkeley.
