I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Oregon (UO), and conduct research at the Center for Cyber Security and Privacy (CCSP). I received my B.S. degree from the University of Texas at Arlington in Computer Science. My research interests include distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks and defenses, Internet of Things security and privacy, and network measurement. My research has been funded in part by the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Defense (DoD), and National Science Foundation (NSF).
