Alley Stoughton is a research professor in Computer Science at BU and a transgender woman. When she’s not hard at work doing proofs of cryptographic protocols on the computer, she can be found on her bike, at a concert, or hosting a radio show. For Stoughton, professional life is all about connection and respect. At BU, she says she has found a “critical mass of people who are different, happily coexisting in the same space, where you can just be yourself, and that’s a really good feeling.”
