About Me

If you are interested in what I have done professionally, you are welcome to read my CV, Teaching Statement, and my Research Statement. If you want more information about my group, please check out the Network & Security Research Group website. I am also part of a much larger cohort of faculty, staff, and students at UIUC that do great work in security called the Security and Privacy Research Group at Illinois (SPR@I)


I have taught a variety of systems classes including Operating Systems, Networking, Distributed Systems, and Security. Recent classes include:


I am grateful to work with a great cadre of scientists, postdocs, and students:


My interets lie in exploring the security, performance, and availability properties of computing systems. My work seeks to both inform the development of these systems to address immediate, important societal problems as well as to fundementially enhance our understanding of the sciences underlying computing subfields including computer systems organization, networks, and security and privacy. This work is accomplished (primarily) under the following contracts: When our work requires IRB approval, we list the submissions and approvals here: At UIUC we are periodically required to complete the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI Program). My most recent Coursework Requirements Report can be found here.
