I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Network Security Lab in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Washington, Seattle. I am hosted by Radha Poovendran and Linda Bushnell.
I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the Institute for Systems Research at the University of Maryland, College Park. My dissertation was titled Opacity and Structural Resilience in Cyber-physical Systems. My Ph.D. was supervised by Steven I. Marcus and Rance Cleaveland.
My research focus has been in the fields of software-defined secure verification and feedback-driven machine learning to reason about the behavior of autonomous cyber systems. I adopt a multidisciplinary approach that establishes an interplay between fundamental techniques from machine learning, optimization and control, game theory, and formal methods.
