It’s official — I’m heading to Princeton!
After a long, exciting and exhausting interview season, I’m thrilled to be starting at Princeton this fall as a tenure-track faculty member! My appointment will be in computer science with a CITP (Center for Information Technology Policy) affiliation. This is a dream position for me in just about every way. I’m looking forward to joining Ed Felten and other amazing people at Princeton, and to the challenges of research and teaching.
I feel lucky and privileged to be writing this, and thankful for the advice and support of people close to me throughout the process. I’m particularly indebted to Vitaly, my advisor, for his regular doses of wisdom.
I will miss Stanford and sunny California. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed both the academic environment and the entrepreneurial culture of the Bay area, and Dan Boneh has been a great mentor. But I feel mentally ready to explore new directions, both career-wise and in life.
While some things have changed, others will remain the same, such as this blog. I expect to continue to cover the same mix of topics — information privacy, tech policy, and meta-issues of academia and research. And speaking of the blog, I have several pages of notes of my impressions of the interview process, which I’m planning to turn into a series of posts. Stay tuned.
