David T. Stott

Dr. David T. Stott is a technical staff member in the Secure Resilient Systems and Technology Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. His primary research focus is practical applications of new cryptographic technologies. Projects range from applying secure computation technologies, such as secure multiparty computation, in a cloud computing environment, evaluating the impacts of quantum computing threats on cryptography, and the cost of implementing quantum resilient cryptographic suites on embedded devices. The security and resilience of the nation's cyber infrastructure could benefit greatly through the combination of novel cryptographic solutions and robust software development. 

Prior to joining the Laboratory, Stott worked as a member of the technical staff at LGS Innovations (previously Bell Laboratories) on several projects with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), and the intelligence community to support secure network communication. 

Stott earned a BS degree in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 1996 and a PhD degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in 2001.
