Yael Eiger


I am currently riding my bike down the Pacific Coast 🚲 before I start my PhD at the University of Washington Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering this Fall (2023).

In 2022, I was a fulltime researcher in Prof. Roya Ensafi’s lab at the University of Michigan, working on the ethical detection & analysis of censorship, surveillance, and vulnerability in user networks.

Before that, I was a Software Engineer at TED for 2 years working on a tool to crowdsource misinformation online called the Healthy Internet Project, and for TED.com and at the TED conference.

Before that, I was a Software Engineering Intern at Rocket Software working on zowe, an open source remote desktop for z/OS mainframe users.

And before that, I was a Teaching Assistant & Project Assistant for Professor Timothy Hickey (Computer Science) and a Research Assistant for Professor Daniel Kryder (History), both at Brandeis University.
