My research interests are focused on cybersecurity. Currently, I am working on moving target defenses and on analyzing security-relevant network data. I am also involved in bringing anthropology into cybersecurity. Previous projects include malware analysis using fuzzy hashing and defense strategies against UDP-based DDoS attacks.
