Welcome

Welcome to Brendan Saltaformaggio's home page. I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University. I research in the FRIENDS Lab under the direction of Professor Dongyan Xu and Professor Xiangyu Zhang. I earned a Ph.D. and Master of Science in Computer Science from Purdue University and a Bachelor of Science with Honors in Computer Science from The University of New Orleans in New Orleans, LA (where I was born and raised). For more information about me please see the links on this page.

I am honored to be the inaugural recipient of the Emil Stefanov Memorial Fellowship in Computer Science. This award, presented by the Stefanov family, is in recognition of outstanding contributions in the field of cybersecurity research.

My research is partially funded by the 2016 Symantec Research Labs Graduate Fellowship. This is a $20,000 award over 1 year to fund "innovative research that has real-world value." [Link]

I am delighted to announce that I will be joining the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2017!
