What is your education and work background?
I was a college hire from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  I’ve been at Microsoft for over a year now.

How did you come to be a part of the AD RMS team? How long have you worked with the team?
In college I did my senior project in digital privacy and built a prototypical web-based secure messaging application.  I followed my interest in privacy protection and encryption onto this team.  I’ve been on this team since I started as a full-timer.

What is your role?
I am the Program Manager handling our Mobile story – prioritizing customer demands, writing functional specifications for new features, coordinating work with partner teams, scheduling work items within our own team, and serving as a primary point-of-contact within the product group for the existing products.

What is your favorite aspect of the technology?
We have better integration with Outlook than any other secure messaging product I’ve seen.  That Outlook turns functionalities off in order to enforce the rights schemes dictated by our platform is really cool.

Any last words?
If you have an interest in privacy, compliance, or encryption, please let our team know!
