Teaching statement

Andrea Bittau

    I am particularly interested in teaching classes on operating systems, security and networking. I gave lectures
on these topics both at Stanford and UCL and found it highly rewarding. When teaching classes I try to keep a
good balance of concepts and details so that everyone can follow the concepts and more advanced students are
kept interested with the details. I also like to keep the content as real and current as possible, showing what is
being done both in industry and research today. For example, after explaining classic buffer overflows, I will
deepen the discussion by explaining how the latest iPhone jailbreak works and what the latest solutions out of
research are. Similarly I like to create projects that are not overly simplified for the sake of learning the particular
task in hand. For example, writing an exploit for the latest vulnerability in the Linux kernel as opposed to a toy
application is more effective in teaching students all the details and nuances that occur in practice. My research
gives me the background necessary to package complex attacks into simpler individual pieces and accessible lab
assignments. My goal is to teach the concepts of computer security, which will stay with students forever. I
then bridge the gap between concepts and reality both to keep students interested and to show them real-world
complexity.
    I enjoy one-on-one student mentoring as it lets me tailor my approach toward the particular student to try to
achieve the best possible outcome. At UCL I advised both graduate and undergraduate students on their final
year projects. One student worked on introducing the idea of a "Virtual Access Point" (VAP) and building its first
implementation, which allowed creating multiple WiFi access points (or even clients) using a single wireless card.
Today, VAPs have become widespread and many implementations exist. Another student worked on building the
first open-source Bluetooth sniffer, using GNU radio. Many have used the work to study the security of Bluetooth
and it now resulted in Ubertooth, a specialized hardware product dedicated entirely to Bluetooth sniffing. In both
cases, I presented the students with the problem, and as they worked toward a solution, I guided them through
any road blocks.
    At Stanford I advised students and helped them shape and channel their ideas to produce high quality papers.
Adam Belay created Dune, a system that lets applications safely access privileged CPU features using hardware
virtualization. This resulted in an OSDI paper. Ali Mashtizadeh created Ori, a file system that makes files
available on all configured devices, with versioning, history and easy sharing. This resulted in an SOSP paper.
In both cases I guided the students end-to-end from inception, to helping design and implement the system, to
finding a compelling way to present their story for publication, to writing the paper, to preparing the conference
talk. Quinn Slack worked on tcpcrypt and integrated it with HTTP digest authentication using PAKE. This results
in mutually authenticated encrypted connections for websites with passwords, without requiring certificates.
    My overall strategy with students is to get them excited. This has multiple components. First, I am good
at rapid prototyping and injecting momentum in a project. I like to build a minimum version of the system that
shows off the most important results or benefits. This often results in a demo that gets students excited because
they see that the system is possible, it works, is real, and looks cool. They can then either start over or build
on the prototype, taking the long path to the final result, but at least they are now excited about the final target.
Second, I like to keep projects as real as possible. I find that students most enjoy the systems that can be built,
deployed, and are relevant. There is nothing more rewarding that having a user base, real products that use the
work, or having a protocol become a standard. Finally, I always work on projects that I am personally excited
about, which makes it simpler to attract and motivate like-minded students. My role is to help students find their
spark of interest, confirm the interest by having them rapidly build a prototype, and only then invest the effort to
build a solid system and write a paper about it.

Todor /Toni/ Andreikov è stato uno dei più grandi storici e critici
cinematografici nella scala mondiale. Forse era l'unico storico del cinema,
che si è messo dietro la camera da ripresa. Come regista, ha realizzato solo
un film a lungo metraggio, nel quale, io sono stata scenografa e costumista.






Buon compleanno, dolce Evelina!

Djoko Rosic, attore serbo - bulgaro. Recentemente scomparso.
Riposa in pace, amico! Il film era molto difficile,
e noi eravamo una grande famiglia unita.
Noi superstiti di questa avventura, ancora ci cerchiamo
I progetti per i costumi erano così tanti, che li portavo con 2 grandi valigie.
Dovevo dipingere con grande concentrazione e velocità.
Per ogni disegno, non dovevo impiegare più di 3 minuti.

Questo episodio si girava in pieno inverno. Per gli attori, che
dovevano immergersi nella palude, io dovevo prevedere vestiti per
ogni ciak. Loro entravano nell'acqua con i vestiti asciutti, ed
uscivano con i vestiti che grondavano acqua e coperti con alghe.
