Jeremy Epstein is lead program officer for the NSF Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program, NSF’s flagship multi-disciplinary cybersecurity & privacy program. Prior to this role, he was Deputy Division Director of CISE/CNS, where he was responsible for research in a range of computer science programs, including cybersecurity, cyber physical systems, smart and connected communities, computer systems, networking, computer science education, technology transition, and other assorted topics. Prior to (re)joining NSF in 2017, he was a program manager at DARPA I2O, and a program officer for NSF's Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program. He spent most of his career in industry, including at SRI International and webMethods. His areas of interest are in cybersecurity, particularly elections and voting security. Jeremy is also chair of the Association for Computing Machinery US Technology Policy Committee, founder/director of ACSA Scholarships for Women Studying Information Security (SWSIS), and former associate editor-in-chief of IEEE Security and Privacy Magazine.

Nina Amla is the Acting Senior Advisor for Strategy and Analysis in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate at the U.S. National Science Foundation. She is currently a Program Director in the Division of Computing and Communication Foundations and is responsible for several research programs including Designing Accountable Software Systems, Formal Methods in the Field, Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace and Software and Hardware Foundations. Dr. Amla’s expertise includes formal methods, cryptography, theory of privacy, and software engineering. Prior to her NSF appointment, she was a senior member of the technical staff at Cadence Design Systems.

Daniela Oliveira is a Program Director at the NSF Computer and the Directorate of Information Science and Engineering (CISE), Division of Computer and Network Systems (CNS), Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC), where she focuses on the Systems portfolio.  She received her B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Computer Science from the Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil. She then earned her Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California at Davis. She is on rotation from the University of Florida, where she is an Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, where she specializes on socio-technical aspects of cyber security systems research, including malware analysis and detection, cyber social engineering (phishing and mis/disinformation), and developer blindspots while coding. Daniela Oliveira received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2012 for her innovative research into operating systems' defense against attacks using virtual machines, the 2014 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from President Obama, and the 2017 Google Security, Privacy and Anti-Abuse Award. She is a National Academy of Sciences Kavli Fellow and a National Academy of Engineers Frontiers of Engineering Symposium Alumni. Her research has been sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, and Google.
