I am currently Technical Staff at MIT Lincoln Laboratory.

I am a Ph.D. recipient from the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University where my advisor was Prof. Cristina Nita-Rotaru. I was a member of the Dependable and Secure Distributed Systems Laboratory (DS^2) and also The Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security (CERIAS).

Research

I am interested designing and building intrusion-tolerant distributed systems. My research has focused on the project Trustworthy Overlay Peer-to-Peer Streaming Systems. I have also worked on Towards Intrusion-Tolerant Clouds.
