You have reached my homepage at the Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington.

I co-direct the iSec research lab, and I have research interests in security and privacy. In particular, I am interested in systems for providing Internet privacy, usable security and privacy, and secure and reliable peer-to-peer and ubiquitous computing.

I am honored to have won a NSF CAREER Award.
