These processes also left trails of data in their wakes, ripe for untold analysis. Modern society could no more run without data than without oxygen. Data, the plural form of the Latin word meaning "given,
Jennifer Rexford, chair of the Department of Computer Science, has been named the 2016-2017 Athena Lecturer by the Association for Computing Machinery, the largest professional society in computing research and education.

If we think of Felten as being at one end of the spectrum in his vision of how to best make the Internet secure in the future, and we think of Peterson and Lee as being at the other end, then Jennifer Rexford stands in the middle. Or, perhaps more accurately, Rexford stands simultaneously at both ends of the spectrum -- a shrewd strategist who sees the advantages of simultaneously pursuing orthogonal research agendas.
