Colin O'Flynn has been working with embedded electronics for over ten years. His introduction to electronics began with a Radio Shack 30-in-1 kit, but since then he's moved on to a variety of embedded software and hardware projects. At a time he was involved in the open-source tool chain now used by Arudino, which transitioned into a job with Atmel as part of the low-power wireless division working on IEEE 802.15.4 devices. He has since returned to pursue his PhD at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada. He currently researches side-channel attacks on embedded cryptographic devices and has spoken at several conferences on topics around embedded security.
