Adrienne Porter Felt
Lead, Chrome Usable Security Team, Google


Adrienne Porter Felt leads Google’s Chrome Usable Security team, the group responsible for building (and improving) the browser security features that you can see, like security indicators, browser warnings, and permissions. One of the team’s major initiatives is promoting HTTPS—increasing HTTPS adoption among developers and explaining its value more clearly to end users. Adrienne does a mix of frontend work (building UI), experimental design, large-scale data analysis, and managing. Previously, she was a research scientist on Google’s Security Research team. Adrienne holds a PhD in computer science from UC Berkeley, where her work focused on permission systems.
