So I needed a website to just college random thoughts, resources I’ve found useful, commentary on various things, and a place to point people to when I’d like to share something I’ve done or been a part of. This is it.

Who am I?

My name is Corey Petty, this is the bio I typically send people when on various media outlets, which are currently, at least tangientially, attached to “Blockchain” in some way:

Dr. Corey Petty started his blockchain focused research around 2012 as a personal hobby while doing his PhD candidacy at Texas Tech University in Computational Chemical Physics. He then went on to co-found The Bitcoin Podcast Network and still serves as a host on the flagship The Bitcoin Podcast and a more technical show Hashing It Out. Corey left academia and entered the data science/blockchain security industry for a few years attempting to fix vulnerabilities in ICS/SCADA networks before transition to Status as Cheif Security Officer. Corey maintained this security role until February of 2022 and has since transitioned into Product Owner of all infrastructure products at Status.

But that picks up after a past life of academia, which molded a good portion of who I am today. After high school at Cedar Hill High School, I worked on a bachelors in Physics, then a PhD in Chemistry at Texas Tech University. The bulk of material output can be found in the Pub section of this site.

After my PhD defense, I continued this research at the Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica in São José dos Campos, Brazil. During my time there, I started my contribution to the Blockchain world via the creation of The Bitcoin Podcast.
