At Yale Law School, Kilovaty is assisting in developing a cross-disciplinary project on cyber conflict, which brings together lawyers, policymakers, and technology experts to engage in a constructive discourse on the current state of affairs on cybersecurity law. The project is a collaboration between Yale Law School and Yale University’s Department of Computer Science. The aim of the project is to bridge the gaps between the legal and technical aspects of cybersecurity. Kilovaty works on this project with Professors Oona Hathaway (YLS), Scott Shapiro (YLS), and Joan Feigenbaum (Yale CS).
