PhD Student in Information and Media
College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University

I am currently a third year doctoral student in the department of Media and Information at Michigan State University. The department is part of the school of Communication Arts and Sciences.

In a nutshell, I'm interested in cyber security and usable security. I'm particularly interest in how technology changes individuals behavior. These interests have led me to study a variety of different topics with a lot of really cool researchers. I recently had the opportunity to work at a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) at MIT LL
I'm currently associated with the BIT lab run by Dr. Rick Wash and Dr. Emilee Rader

Current Research Interests

  • Cyber security
  • Usable Security
  • Blockchain
  • Behavior Change
  • Computational Methods:
    • Natural Language Processing
    • Naive Bayes

Software Development Background

"Good software, like wine, takes time" - Joel Spolsky

I used to think that writing software would be one of the coolest jobs in the world. While i still love to code, i found that the actual job of software development was different than i imagined. I spent much of my time planning, leading code reviews, and documenting. All important activities but i was moving away from what I thought was interesting: solving problems with code. Industry also taught me that I enjoyed leveraging data into information and began to acquire data science skills.

Returning to academia has really made me fall in love with coding again. I've enjoyed designing algorithms and figuring out ways to solve problems dynamically. I've recently spent time learning machine learning algorithms and have started to early work for my dissertation.
