Who Am I?
I’ve been heavily involved in embedded security for many years, having started the ChipWhisperer project, which is supported by my startup (NewAE Technology Inc.). I was previously an assistant professor at Dalhousie University, which means I also completed a PhD on the topic of embedded security. I’ve spoke extensively at conferences on this topic, so you may have seen me around somewhere. I’ve also written a book, the Hardware Hacking Handbook.
Previously I was fairly active in some of the open-source AVR toolchain development, which is what powers the Arduino platform. This ultimately led to working as a consultant with Atmel for several years.
I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. I’ve previously worked around the world for a variety of companies performing such diverse tasks as software programming, PCB design, prototype construction, installing devices on helicopters, RF layout, FPGA design, and a few others.
