I joined Penn State Behrend in Aug. 2013 as an Assistant Professor. Prior to that, I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Alabama.

I am broadly interested in cyber security and applied cryptography. In particular, my research interests span the areas of computer and network accountability, cloud security, smart grid security, web security, and digital forensics.
