William Tolley, President
Image William has worked as a farmhand, a sous chef in a New Nordic and French fusion kitchen, a software engineer in a nuclear facility, and after studying Philosophy at Berea College, attended the University of New Mexico, where he earned an MS in Computer Science under Jed Crandall. He is currently a PhD student at Arizona State University, where he explores how data is leaked during secure communication. He most recently spent 15 months as an OTF senior fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, where he developed a novel way to make inferences about active TCP connections inside a VPN tunnel.
                                   Antonio Espinoza, Secretary
Image Dr. Espinoza is a security researcher with interests in fields ranging from: reverse engineering [1], information flow tracking [2], network measurement, to container measurement.

                                   Jedidiah Crandall
Image Jed is formerly a University teacher in Albuquerque, New Mexico, who developed an interest in cooking up side channel network exploits in 2010. His research group has developed techniques for peeking through firewalls [1] [2], measuring censorship from anywhere on the Internet [3], inferring the existence of connections completely off-path [4] [5], and predicting Linux IPIDs [6]. Other interests include applied crypto and unveilling Internet surveillance [7] [8] [9]. Hobbies include throwing pizzas on roofs, eating red chili cheeseburgers, and referencing TV shows he hasn’t actually seen [10].
                                   Beau Kujath
Image Beau Kujath is a cybersecurity researcher with Breakpointing Bad who received his B.S. in Computer Science from the University of New Mexico in 2019 and is currently pursuing a PhD at Arizona State University. He spent three years interning at Sandia National Labs involved in a variety of networking and cybersecurity projects. His research focuses on internet freedom and ways the network stack, or the system in general, can expose sensitive information on the end user. He is particularly interested in the ingredients needed for bad guys to cook up exploits and take advantage of the current privacy tools used in the wild by web users. Recently, his work dug into potential VPN client threats and how information could be leaked from the network stack to expose the client.
