I am an Electrical Engineer with a PhD in Applied Physics (Caltech 1975). I am a Research Associate in the Autonomic Computing Laboratory, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Arizona.

My current interest is in the problem of establishing trust on the Internet, particularly for email systems. I have started a non-profit open-mail.org, which is sponsoring a Registry of Internet Transmitters. I am also the mail admin for box67.com, which provides the real-world experience I need to develop better models and systems.

Before I retire, I would like to put a big dent in the $20B/year Internet crime problem. I believe the Registry will do that.
