About Me

I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the George Washington University. I have broad research interests, primarily in the area of computer security/cybersecurity, privacy, and usable security. Recently, I have been focusing on human factors in mobile authentication and oblivious access in the cloud.

I am always looking for self-motivated and smart students to collaborated on a number of research projects in the domain of security and privacy. Feel free to contact me if you are interested or if you have any questions.
