About me

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Temple University . I received my Ph.D in Computer Science from the College of William and Mary, and my B.S in Computer Science and B.A. in Economics, both from the University of Texas at Austin. I am a member of the Center of Network Computing.

My research interests lies in next generation computing systems. These systems often utilize the widespread deployment of mobile and embedded sensor devices, high bandwidth wireless coverage, and inexpensive cloud computing infrastructure, to develop new applications that enrich our lives. My current research interests are environment-based security (the use of environment conditions to build security protocols), and mobile/wearable systems for dementia patients.
