After graduating summa cum laude from the University of Maryland Baltimore County with a B.S. in Computer Science in 2005, he joined Purdue University’s Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security (CERIAS). While there, he began with a focus in malware detection and eventually migrated to a focus in security metrics, which ultimately became the focus of his dissertation. He joined what is now MIT Lincoln Laboratory’s Cyber Security Division in 2011 where he invented algorithms to model, assess, and predict security-relevant phenomena. In addition to algorithm design and development, he also led multiple teams in building prototypes to address cyber security problems of national interest.
