I’m a PhD candidate at Arizona State University majoring in Computer Science with an emphasis in Information Assurance. I do research on digital forensics in the Laboratory of Security Engineering for Future Computing (SEFCOM) which is connected to the Center for Cybersecurity and Digital Forensics (CDF).
And in case you were wondering, I’m 6‘11”, and no, I don’t play basketball.
My motivations as an aspiring professor are as follows:
|Teaching:||I want to inspire students in Computer Science to do one of two things: join the ranks of researchers that improve computer security, or at least be aware of the security issues in computer science and be more responsible computer scientists.|
|Research:||I want to make it safer for people to use technology, so I study computer security issues and I develop techniques for catching criminals using digital evidence.|
|Service:||I want to contribute to the institution, professional organizations, and community to which I belong.|
