I'm currently working on extending
an anti-phishing browser extension, by combining local phish detection
with data sharing between peers to improve our collective immunity
I'm also working on a framework for sharing network security data
between multiple organizations for faster and more comprehensive
incident response, with a goal of automation and future incident
forecasting. This is a collaborative effort with USC/ISI, Los Alamos
National Laboratory, and Colorado State U.
Prior work entailed developing and evaluating content reuse
detection techniques on web-scale datasets, evaluating availability of
cloud services and systems, and securing personal cloud
Prior to prior work, I worked on delay-tolerant networks; I continue
to keep as updated as I can (and maybe write some code).
Interests include network protocols and analysis, data
visualization, information security and privacy, social networks.
