Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering: Systems, 2004, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI.
M.S. in Electrical Engineering: Systems, 2001, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI.
B. of Electrical Engineering, 1999, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA.
I research and lead the technical development of secure and high-performance distributed computing technologies as part of research programs funded by federal agencies such as DARPA and the AFRL. I lead proposal-writing efforts that support my R&D activities. My research interests include secure cloud computing, fully homomorphic encryption (FHE), practical encryption, high performance distributed computing, Big Data, graph data analytics and rare event modeling. I am now an associate professor of computer science at NJIT in Newark, NJ. I teach classes and oversee student research related to cyber-security.
