Hello, my name is Alan Nochenson.

I have a B.S. in Information Systems from Carnegie Mellon University and an M.S. in Information Sciences & Technology from Penn State University.

In the last 3 years, I have done research in the sphere of security and privacy. I’ve specifically been concerned with how people make decisions and how psychological biases affect these decisions. I’ve designed and programmed experiments that were run on Amazon Mechanical Turk, conducted sophisticated game-theoretic analyses, and reviewed papers for a variety of conferences.

In summers 2011 and 2012, I interned for Zynga. First I worked as a Software Development Engineer on the Platform team and then as an Application Security Engineer. Before that I interned at Amazon as a Software Development Engineer on the Similarities team.Previously, I taught Tae Kwon Do with Can Do Martial Arts.
