Ben Stoddard
PhD Student
Duke University

Currently I am carrying out a PhD at Duke University. My research focuses on statistical and systems privacy. Additionally I am jointly earning my Masters degree in Computer Science while conducting research.

I was an Software Engineering Intern with Google in their Cambridge, MA office. I've also interned with Adobe Systems in Seattle, WA on their Creative Cloud team during my undergraduate education in Computer (Software) Engineering at the University of Washington.

On the side I spend time reading pretty much anything I can get my hands on... usually this isn't academic though. Can't blame a guy for enjoying some of his free-time. One of my favorite times to read is at the end of a day of backpacking, although I don't get as many chances to break out the boots and tent as I used to.
