Brief Bio

Andrés Molina-Markham is a Principal Research Scientist at RSA Laboratories, the Security Division of EMC. His research interests include security and privacy aspects of mobile and ubiquitous systems. Previously, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society at Dartmouth College. Andrés received his PhD from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Prior to that, he earned a master's in Mathematics and a master's in Computer and Information Science from the University of Pennsylvania. Andrés' research includes work on secure systems for mobile eHealth, novel authentication methods using wearable devices, privacy-enhancing technologies for smart meters, secure communications for computational RFIDs, security issues with medical devices, and covert channels.
