Emma Dauterman


I am a first-year Ph.D. student studying computer science in the UC Berkeley RISELab, where I am advised by Raluca Ada Popa and Ion Stoica. I am broadly interested in systems security, with a focus on distributed systems and cryptography. I am a recipient of the NSF GRFP Fellowship.

I completed my B.S. and M.S. at Stanford University in computer science where I was advised by David Mazieres and was also fortunate to work with Dan Boneh, Keith Winstein, and John Ousterhout.
