I am a research scientist at Intel Labs.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral research associate at the Information Trust Institute researching trustworthy computing within the SHARPS project on healthcare IT security. I worked with Professor Carl A. Gunter, who was also my PhD advisor. My approach to improving the trustworthiness of computing systems involved developing custom processor architectures in hardware and associated operating system software.
I am an alumnus of the Illinois Security Lab.
I worked to foster collaboration within the security research community at the U of I by managing the Security Reading Group for a few semesters. It brings together researchers from the CS and ECE departments for deep discussions of select research papers.
