I'm getting ready to return home for a few weeks for a break, it seemed a good time to reflect on my experience in Cambridge so far. Though I've been here for about 14 months it seems like "the first year" is over. While I never have as much free time as I'd like to, I have gotten to do a lot of fun trips and my experience as a PhD student has mostly been positive. I've worked in a number of different areas and become quite interested in social networking privacy issues and graph privacy. In the past week I posted my analysis of Facebook's new privacy changes, and they were used in the news and and by privacy advocates
I still have a long way to go in my field and my career but I'm enjoying the journey right now.
