About me

I am a computer security researcher and educator. I work as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Computer Science and Engineering at the Louisiana State University (LSU). I am also a faculty member of the Center for Computation and Technology (CCT) at LSU. Previously, I enjoyed working as a Canizaro-Livingston Endowed Assistant Professor in Cybersecurity at the University of New Orleans. Prior to that, I was lucky to have completed my Ph.D. from University of Georgia under the supervision of an incredible advisor, Dr. Roberto Perdisci!

I am intrigued by all areas of applied security. My current research interests lie in web security and privacy with a particular focus on measuring and dismantling social engineering attacks. I am also very interested in tackling web/internet security problems from HCI and social computing perspectives. I often tend to apply machine learning techniques to solve system security problems.
