My Ph.D., from the University of Texas at Austin (2012), was on network security – specifically, on access control and firewalls. I also published work on Internet Mapping, Secure Protocols, and Sensor Networks. 

I then took a teaching position in India, at IIIT Delhi. Teaching a range of courses – networks, distributed systems, security, and programming – I developed broad interests ("from Kerberos to Paxos"). I also worked with some excellent UG students to publish papers.

Most recently, I joined the Rochester Institute of Technology as an Assistant Professor of Computing Security, where I study problems spanning Networks and Security and have recently started to graduate my own Ph.D. students.
