I am a second-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 serving 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.
