imageWelcome to my page. I am currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.


I closely collaborate with Dr. Ivan Beschastnikh from UBC, and Dr. Justin Cappos from NYU. Previously, I have been working with Dr. Yvonne Coady from the Department of Computer Science, Dr. Aaron Gulliver from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Victoria, and Dr. Rick McGeer from SAP.




My research interest is computer networking, operating systems, security and privacy, and software engineering.

Find me on Google Scholar Citations or DBLP. My calendar can be found here.
