I’m Spencer, and I make and break software — bilingually!

I currently work at Trail of Bits, where I do computer security research and development. Previously, I did security consulting at NCC Group. I’m primarily interested in the low-level aspects of computing: operating systems, kernels, networking, and even a bit of hardware. A list of my notable technical projects and publications, both professional and personal, can be found on the Portfolio page.

Outside of work, I enjoy fiddling around with UNIXes, hacking on various open source projects, immersing myself in Chinese, collecting opera and classical music obscura, and occasionally DMing a bit of D&D.


I can be reached by email at spencer@spencermichaels.net. My GitHub is SpencerMichaels.
