I am a third year PhD student at the University of Iowa in the Department of Computer Science where I am being advised by Zubair Shafiq. My PhD research is at the intersection of cyber security and Internet measurement. The focus of my PhD studies is measurement and analysis of reputation fraud and cyber-crime. As a part of my ongoing research, I am studying reputation fraud services on different online social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
