My name is Deian Stefan. I am a fourth year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Dept. at Stanford University, where I work on building security systems. My research homes are the Secure Computer Systems Lab, where I am advised by "Prof." David Mazières and the Security Lab, where I am advised by Prof. John C. Mitchell.
Prior to Stanford I obtained a B.E. and M.E. in Electrical Engineering at Cooper Union, where I focused on applying GPUs and FPGAs to speeding up cryptographic and cryptanalysis algorithms.
I co-taught (with Edward Z. Yang) the Programming Languages course at Stanford last Fall.
