I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). My research group is the Security and Forensics Engineering (SAFE) Lab. I am also a faculty fellow of VCU Cybersecurity Center. Before VCU, I was a Canizaro-Livingston Endowed Assistant Professor in Cybersecurity at the University of New Orleans (UNO), New Orleans, LA.

My research interests are broadly in the area of cybersecurity, currently focusing on digital forensics, malware, cyber-physical systems, and cybersecurity education.

I am a recipient of the ORAU Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award, an Outstanding Research Award from the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS), and the UNO's Early Career Research Prize.

My research work has been supported in part by the NSF, NSA, ONR, ARO, ORAU and VA CCI, and has received three Best Paper Awards at DFRWS'20, ISC'13, and ICRC'11, and an Outstanding Poster Award at CODASPY'16.
