I am currently an associate professor of computer science at Kennesaw State University. Upon completing the graduate study, I started my professional career in industry, working mostly in the fields of security in mobile/wireless networking and protocols in distributed systems. In 2008, I moved to academia.
I am a computer scientist by training and (perhaps) a philosopher by birth. I am fundamentally interested in the study of (de)-compsability with applications to the areas of science (partially pure and mostly applied) and engineering. In particular, my current interest is in improving dependability (security, reliability, fault-tolerance) in system design.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota with degrees of B.S. and Ph.D., both in computer science. I am a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the ACM. (With a dual residency, I split my time between Georgia, during the academic year, and the Mid-Atlantic region, during summer).
