Welcome to my website!
I am an Electrical (Systems) Engineer, researcher, and technology enthusiast. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Michigan-Dearborn.
My research interests are in the security and resilience of smart connected communities and critical infrastructure systems. The focus is on cross-layer design of models, services, and mechanisms for systems and networks that comprise of networked cyber-physical systems (CPS), wireless communication systems, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
