I defended my PhD dissertation in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in Jan 2011. My PhD advisor was Prof. Carl A. Gunter. I also worked closely with Dr. Ranveer Chandra. Currently, I am working as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. Tarek Abdelzaher. I will soon join Microsoft's Windows Kernel Team.

My areas of research interest include wireless, network, and computer security, security for white space networks, applications of machine learning in security, data fusion in participatory and human-centric sensing, and fuel-efficient navigation systems. For more details please see my papers.

Feel free to visit Prof. Carl Gunter's blog on my PhD work.
