In the Spring 2012 semester, the NYU Tandon Computer Science and Engineering department established a program for Hackers in Residence. In this program, recognized industry experts are invited to the university to enhance student academics, oversee and direct research initiatives, and expand collaboration with outside industry groups. As charter members they invited long-time collaborators Dan Guido and Dino Dai Zovi of Trail of Bits, a local information security startup, to coordinate these initiatives for the university.
