I am an computer science Ph.D candidate at the University of Florida, advised by Patrick Traynor.  Our lab is the Florida Institute for Cybersecurity Research (FICS).  I am also the CTO of University of Florida's first security startup, CryptoDrop, which is based on my ransomware research. 

Previously, I was a Technical Expert at Walmart where I led the design and implementation of endpoint security technologies across thousands of global sites. Later, I joined the Security Operations Center, refined the group’s internal development processes, and developed strategies for ingesting new security data.
