Nicholas Boucher

I am a PhD Student studying under Professor Ross Anderson. I am interested in all things security, and of late have been focusing my attention on homomorphic encryption, voting systems, and adversarial ML. I enjoy writing code, and particularly enjoy breaking existing code. I did my undergraduate studies at Harvard and have been affiliated with the Cambridge Computer Laboratory since 2020. I also work for Microsoft, where I put security knowledge into practice.
