Marquis-Boire is slightly unusual among infosec researchers because his background is in political science. He got interested in hacking because he discovered open source software and loved the idea. As a college student he was part of a hacker group in New Zealand and was lucky enough to get a full time job doing similar things after he graduated. His work has taken him from smaller projects to Google and now to doing research on state-sponsored surveillance and hacking with organizations like Electronic Frontier Foundation and First Look Media.
