Hello world!

I'm an incoming Assistant Professor in Georgia Tech's Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) Department, beginning Fall 2020.

FOR PROSPECTIVE Ph.D. STUDENTS: I am looking for motivated students this upcoming application cycle (2019-2020), so please contact me if interested or apply to GT CS or ECE. I'm particularly interested in students with experience in network security, network measurements, data mining of software repositories, and usable security.

Research Summary: Computer systems deployed across the Internet are riddled with security vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. These lapses lead to severe compromise and data breach incidents (e.g., the massive 2017 Equifax breach). I work on (1) empirically understanding the barriers that prevent or limit people in addressing these security problems, and (2) developing methods and tools for overcoming these barriers.
