Hi, I am a mom, a wife, an entrepreneur, and a computer scientist.

I am the Founder and CEO of 6crickets Inc. Our mission is to bring the best enrichment activities to children through efficient, advanced online tools for parents, enrichment educators, and schools.

Prior 6crickets, I founded and managed the Security and Privacy research group at Microsoft Research, Redmond. I was also a Principal Researcher interested in web, browser, mobile security and systems, network security in general. Some noteworthy projects that I have led include: ServiceOS (including MashupOS and Gazelle), Shield (including BrowserShield), and PeerPressure, each of which have yielded technology transfer into Microsoft products.
