I graduated with a PhD in Computer Science & Engineering at University of South Florida. My advisor was Dr.Xinming Ou in Argus cyber
security research group.
ResearchI enjoy solving problems in computer, information and network security that lie in the intersection of theory and systems. My PhD research efforts focussed towards studying Security Operation Centers (SOCs) through Anthropological methods. The goal of this research was to understand security operations from a holistic perspective through long-term participant observation. Insights obtained from this study are used to develop better training methods for analysts, develop better operational tools, and provide future security researchers a comprehensive overview of security operations culture.
I also worked on modeling forensic analysis using sound theoretical methods. In the past I have worked on evaluation of intrusion analysis systems built using Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques.
