I am currently a member of the research staff at the Austin Research Laboratory within IBM Research. My research interests focus on network and cloud security, usable security and privacy enhancing tools.
I received my PhD from University of Maryland, College Park in 2007 with a focus on key management and secure data aggregation. Prior to joining IBM Research, I spent 2008-2012 as a security engineer in the Application Security Team of Apple in Cupertino, with an emphasis on digital rights management (DRM). In 2013-14, I was also a staff member with Samsung Research America in Dallas, TX, working on hardware security (TPM and ARM TrustZone).
