James Larisch

Iโ€™m computer science PhD student at Harvard University, advised by Prof.ย Eddie Kohler. At Northeastern I worked (work) with Prof.ย Christo Wilson, among others. I research systems and security โ€” I am particularly interested in improving the security, privacy, and performance of the modern web, among other things.

I enjoy Brazilian jiu jitsu, playing piano, reading long novels, and simple personal websites that load near-instantly.
