Prior to joining Goodwin, Mr. Arnold developed his legal expertise as a Scientific Advisor in the Chicago office of McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP.
Prior to that, Mr. Arnold worked in the cybersecurity and intelligence sector of a military defense research and development firm, contracting with not only the U.S. military, but foreign entities and countries across the world. This work covered a wide range of areas, including cybersecurity, electronic warfare, artificial intelligence defense, distributed and decentralized architecture research, counter-UAS, and radar system development and weaponry.
Mr. Arnold also participated in computer science research under the direction of Dr. Dennis Brylow. As a member of Dr. Brylow’s research team, Mr. Arnold contributed to a wide variety of projects, including converting and further enhancing a recursively built operating system (XINU), developing a browser-based integrated development environment (IDE), and setting up a cloud-based compiler to allow inexpensive computers to produce hardware specific code for widely used, low-power devices such as Arduino. Mr. Arnold also authored and presented research at various academic research conventions hosted by the Association for Computing Machinery, including: (1) Research on Equity and Sustained Participation in Engineering, Computing, and Technology (RESPECT) in Charlotte, North Carolina; (2) SIGCSE 2016 in Memphis, Tennessee; and (3) CSTA Annual Conference in San Diego, California.
