About Me

I am currently the founding chair of the School of Cybersecurity and Privacy (SCP) at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

My interets lie in exploring the security, performance, and availability properties of computing systems. My work seeks to both inform the development of these systems to address immediate, important societal problems as well as to fundementially enhance our understanding of the sciences underlying computing subfields including computer systems organization, networks, and security and privacy.
