My current research at UTK aims to make authentication more secure by offering concrete solutions to problems with password manager design and implementation. I also explored the use of nation scale mobile ad hoc networks to enable communication over large areas when it would otherwise be impossible, such as after natural disasters or in heavily censored regions. My work at Oak Ridge National Laboratory spans everything from the use of images of vehicles at stoplights to enhance fuel efficiency in cities to the usability and efficacy of Intrusion Detection Systems. My research interests are chiefly within the realm of security and privacy, though I’m willing travel beyond those borders to explore interesting and challenging problems.
