nathan reitinger law meets computer science

We’re coming down to the end of Season 3 of the Tech Policy Grind! For our last Fellow Highlight of the season (and 2022), Reema chats with Class 4 Foundry Fellow Nathan Reitinger, PhD Candidate in Computer Science at the University of Maryland…and JD? Tune in to hear about Nathan’s experience in applied privacy, and what a career at the nexus of law and computer science looks like.

Nathan is a lawyer and computer scientist. He holds a masters in computer science, security track, from Columbia University (advised by Steve Bellovin), a JD from Michigan State (licensed in New Hampshire), and is currently enrolled in a computer science PhD program at the University of Maryland (advised by Michelle Mazurek). Nathan’s work focuses on where law and computer science meet, using tools from each of the respective disciplines to solve interesting problems. More specifically, he works in the area of applied privacy: It shouldn’t take a masters-level degree in computing to obtain privacy in today’s world, but it does—and we should fix that!
