William Enck

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at NC State University and director of the Wolfpack Security and Privacy Research (WSPR) laboratory. I earned my Ph.D. and M.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University in 2011 and 2006, respectively, and my B.S. in Computer Engineering from Penn State in 2004.

My research focuses on the design, optimization, and measurement of security for computing platforms, specifically on mobile phones, and the complex environments in which they operate. Through the design and evaluation of practical enhancements to existing architectures, my research seeks to improve security guarantees in commodity computer systems. (Short Bio)
