Supplemental Research Staff Member
Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY USA



I'm a Supplemental Research Staff Member in the Information Security Group at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from North Carolina State University, and my Bachelor of Science in Computer and Information Science from Cleveland State University.

My research interests broadly fall within the areas of systems security and privacy, with a primary focus on analyzing and improving the security and privacy of computing platforms and the software targeted towards those platforms. My research generally involves building real systems and tools to address, or perform large-scale empirical measurements of, security and privacy risks. I am particularly interested in applying text analytics, machine learning, and other data analytics techniques to extract and draw insights about security and privacy-relevant information and leverage it to identify risks or allow systems to autonomously make informed decisions.
