I am a third-year doctoral student at Georgia Tech studying computer security with Patrick Traynor. I completed a BS and MS in Computer Engineering at Mississippi State University.
My current research interests include mobile security, especially how mobile markets can contribute to security. I am also interested in secure wireless systems. Previously, I worked on industrial control system, smart grid, and critical infrastructure security. For my master's thesis, I constructed and evaluated a virtual testbed for industrial control system security research.
In addition to my academic work, I am currently the Graduate Student Council Vice President for the School of Computer Science. Contact me if you have are having issues with SCS or the College of Computing, or if you have ideas on how to improve the experience of graduate students.
I also serve as the librarian for the GSC RSI lending library. The Graduate Student Council of the College of Computing maintains a number of ergonomic keyboards and mice for trial use. Students and faculty may borrow keyboards and mice for a period of one month to decide if they would benefit from a potentially expensive investment in ergonomic hardware. Equipment may be reserved online.
