James Mickens

James is a computer scientist and the Gordon McKay Professor of Computer Science at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. He has broad interests in systems design and security and much of his research focuses on the problems that arise when distributed systems must scale to many users and many machines. James investigates how to provide high performance to those systems despite the presence of faulty or subverted machines. He also studies mechanisms for protecting user data from other users and the system itself (which may not be fully trusted by users).
