Jedidiah Crandall comes from a computer science background and his research is in the area of computer systems (operating systems, networks and computer architecture) and cybersecurity. However, his research interest is to measure censorship, surveillance and other threats to internet freedom to build a picture over time of how the internet is evolving. One particular interest is how network protocols and their implementations can adapt to the novel threats faced by at-risk populations, such as journalists and activists, where the network itself is malicious. His research group collects data about threats to internet freedom through internet measurement, reverse engineering and social media analysis.
