I innovate and teach information security

I am a Service Architect at Akamai. I was a Software Engineer at Harris and Microsoft. I created the MSIAC degree program as an Assistant Professor at FIT and was on the faculty at ASU.

I received my Ph.D. and B.S. degrees in computer engineering from FAU and my M.S. degree from UF. My Ph.D. dissertation developed a hybrid content-based, collaborative filtering query method for searching images.

In my spare time, I enjoy travel, hockey, and writing music.

Training and Talks

I create technical security training for corporate and academic audiences

My experience ranges from corporate training, including multi-day courses on cloud security for an executive-level audience, to graduate and undergraduate courses like the Master of Science in Information Assurance and Cybersecurity I created at FIT.

I regularly give talks on security to a wide range of audiences of all levels.

Thinking and Research

Author of over 40 publications in security and information retrieval

I research ways to improve security, including operations, authentication (particularly biometrics), usability, and securing information. I apply a foundation of knowledge in information retrieval to a variety of security challenges.

Articles and citations are available on Google Scholar.
