Dr. Snow received a M.Sc. in Computer Science and Security Informatics in 2007 from The Johns Hopkins University. Afterwards, he joined the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory as a Systems Security Analyst. In 2009, he pursued further graduate studies and joined Google in the summers of 2011 and 2012 as a Software Engineer in the Safe Browsing Team. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2014. After graduating, he joined UNC Chapel Hill as a Research Engineer to continue security research related to his dissertation. He later co-founded ZeroPoint Dynamics to transition that research into practice and make it available commercially.
His research has received numerous awards, including the Best Student Paper Award (IEEE Symposium on Security & Privacy, 2013), the 2012 Outstanding Research in Privacy Enhancing Technologies Award (PET Symposium, 2012), the AT&T Best Applied Security Paper Award (NYU-Poly CSAW, 2011), and the Best Paper Award (IEEE Symposium on Security & Privacy, 2011). He has given a number of talks at prominent computer and network security conferences, including USENIX Security Symposium, IEEE Security and Privacy Symposium, RAID Symposium, EuroSec and BlackHat USA, as well as served on the Program Committee and Session Chair for co-located workshops. He also authored or made major contributions to over a dozen large software projects in the area of computer and network security. He is co-inventor of one issued US patent and three pending patent applications related to network and systems security.
