Jasvir Nagra received his B.Sc. in mathematics and computer science and a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Auckland, New Zealand. He’s been a postdoctoral scholar on the RE-TRUST project at the University of Trento, where his focus is on applying obfuscation, tamperproofing, and watermarking techniques to protect the integrity of software executing on a remote untrusted platform. His research interests also include the design of programming languages and its impact on the security of applications. He’s currently with Google Inc., where he is building Caja, an open source, secure subset of JavaScript. In his spare time Jasvir dabbles with Lego and one day hopes to finish building his Turing machine made entirely out of Lego blocks.
