Portrait of Andrew Paverd

Andrew Paverd

Senior Researcher


I’m a senior researcher at Microsoft Research Cambridge (UK), in collaboration with the Microsoft Security Response Center. My research interests are broadly in the field of systems security.

Prior to joining Microsoft in November 2018, I was a research fellow in the Secure Systems Group at Aalto University, working with N. Asokan. I spent summer 2018 with Gene Tsudik’s group at the University of California Irvine, on a Fulbright Cyber Security Scholarship.

I obtained my DPhil in Computer Science from the University of Oxford in 2016, advised by Andrew Martin and Ian Brown. My doctoral thesis investigated how hardware-based security technologies and remote attestation can be used to enhance privacy in communication systems.
