Nicholas Boucher

I am a PhD candidate studying under Professor Ross Anderson. I am interested in all things security. 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.
