I am one a major contributor to the SysFlow Telemetry Pipeline, which is an open source platform for monitoring system events on cloud platforms.  I have also done a lot systems research with a focus on cyber deception.

In the past, I analyzed large Netflow datasets and was a major contributor to the FloVis Security Visualization Framework.
