Bio & Contact:

My background includes time as a submarine officer for the US Navy, a principal in a couple small startups, an embedded CPU architect for Harris Semiconductor, and an embedded system architect for United Technologies Research Center. At Carnegie Mellon I've worked in the broad areas of wearable computers, software robustness, embedded networking, dependable embedded computer systems, and autonomous vehicle safety. My recent research interests focus on self-driving car safety, embedded system dependability, safety critical systems, embedded control networks, distributed embedded systems, secure embedded systems, and embedded systems education. I'm also co-founder of Edge Case Research. I'm a senior member of IEEE, senior member of the ACM, and a member of IFIP WG 10.4 on Dependable Computing and Fault Tolerance. I was awarded the 2018 IEEE-SSIT Carl Barus Award for outstanding service in the public interest. As of 2019 I am half-time at Carnegie Mellon University and half time at Edge Case Research.
