  • Malware & Vulnerabilities (IoT, ICS, Cybercrime)

  • Quality of Experience (CDN, Cellular, Video)

  • Social Media (Polarization, Personalization, Anonymity)

I'm always looking for passionate and self-motivated graduate and undergradaute students to work on research projects. Email me if you are interested.
