I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Volgeneau School of Engineering at George Mason University (GMU) in Fairfax, VA under the advisement of Dr. Damon McCoy. I received my first Masters of Science in Information Technology from RPI. I received my second Masters of Science in Computer Forensics from George Mason University. I received my Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (Minor: Economics) from Syracuse University.

Research Area

My broad interests are in computer security focusing on insider threat, privacy, anonymity, and cyber-crime. I am specifically interested in how an adversary can profile, track, and monetize Internet and Online Social Network users and what can be done to mitigate these attacks.

I am married to my wife Sarah and we have a 2 year old daughter Addie - both keep me very busy. I also have a 9 year old cockerspaniel named Otto. In my spare time, I enjoy playing and watching basketball. When I am too tired to play basketball, I like to play just about any type of (board/card) game. Chess, backgammon, and poker are some of my favorites. I also love to watch football. I also follow the stock market very closely and dabble with options trading.
