I am a Research Staff Member on the Security Services Team (GSAL) in the Security Research department at IBM Research where I love to solve problems related to cyber security analytics problems using data mining and visualization. I also enjoy learning new programming languages, designing complex distributed, and diving into large datasets.
I completed a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Heels!) under the supervision of Dr. Fabian Monrose and Dr. John McHugh. At UNC, I researched realtime techniques for detecting exploit kits and bots using HTTP and DNS traffic. In the past, I analyzed large Netflow datasets and was a major contributor to the FloVis Security Visualization Framework.
I have worked many years in industry designing software for such companies as IBM Corporation, Diaphonics Inc, and Sybase Inc.
