research overview

  • My work focuses on building (and attacking!) secure systems that users rely on for privacy and autonomy. Users face many threats online today, from 'Big Data'-mining companies that wish to collect and model our online behaviors, to organized criminals that seek financial gain, to even state-level actors and governments that want to control or surveil the communication of their citizens. While there are many tools built to address parts of these and other threats, the game is not over: evolving technologies and increasingly connected devices present new opportunities for attackers to exploit. By studying existing tools and new systems as they emerge, we can help protect users from these threats.

courses taught

  • CSCI 4830 - Special Topics in Computer Science
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Covers topics of interest in computer science at the senior undergraduate level. Content varies from semester to semester. Only 9 credit hours from CSCI 4830 and/or CSCI 4831 can count toward Computer Science BS or BA.
  • ECEN 3350 - Programming Digital Systems
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Explores how computers and programmable hardware in general are used to implement digital systems by looking at the capabilities of central processing units, the use and control of various input/output (I/O) devices, memory organization, and concurrency management. Topics include computer architecture, instruction sets, I/O device programming, interrupts, data transfer mechanisms, semaphores, and memory management.
  • ECEN 4033 - Special Topics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Examines a special topic in Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering. May be repeated up to 9 total credit hours.
  • ECEN 5013 - Special Topics
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Examines a special topic in Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering. May be repeated up to 9 total credit hours.
  • ECEN 5033 - Special Topics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Examines a special topic in Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering. May be repeated up to 9 total credit hours.
  • ECEN 5593 - Advanced Computer Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Provides a broad-scope treatment of important concepts in the design and implementation of high-performance computer systems. Discusses important issues in the pipelining of a processor, out-of-order instruction issue and superscalar designs, design of cache memory systems for such systems, and architectural features required for multicore processor designs. Also studies current and historically important computer architectures. Recommended prerequisite: ECEN 4593. Same as CSCI 5593.
