About Me
I am an Associate Technical Director in the Computer Science Laboratory at SRI International. I completed my Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin under the guidance of Dr. Paul Barford. I also spent two summers at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) as an intern working with Dr. Vern Paxson.
Research Interests
I am broadly interested in all aspects of network, systems, and software security. I particularly enjoy conducting empirical measurements of large-scale systems and using that knowledge to guide the research and development of next-generation security technologies.

My current research focuses on applications of Machine Learning for Network Defense (especially SDN, Cloud, and Container Network Security), Anonymity and Circumvention Systems, Network Protocol Analysis, IoT Security, and Data Provenance Tracking for detection of APTs.

Sponsors (past and present): I gratefully acknowledge funding received from various funding agencies including the National Science Foundation ( NSF ), Defense Advanced Research Project Agency ( DARPA ) and the Office of Naval Research ( ONR ).
