Martin Cochran

I joined Google in August of 2008 and have been working on the security and core search functionality of the Google Search Appliance. I graduated with degrees in mathematics and computer science from the University of Puget Sound and went on to get a PhD in computer science with an emphasis in cryptography from the University of Colorado in 2008.
