James Baker

I am a Ph.D. student in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Georgia Institute of Technology, working under the direction of Dr. Brendan Saltaformaggio, in the Cyber Forensics Innovation Laboratory (CyFI Lab). My research focuses largely on memory analysis, digital forensics and investigations, binary analysis and malware analysis.

Prior to coming to Georgia Tech, I was at Carnegie Mellon University in the Information Networking Institute, advised by Limin Jia. While at CMU, I also worked at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) in the Forensics Operations and Investigations team. Prior to that, I worked at Georgia Tech Research Institute, doing firmware and FPGA development.

I completed my undergraduate work in Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech.


What is RoJam? RoJam (pronounced: row-jam) is a portmanteau of my first and middle names, Roger and James, respectively. Some social circles know me as Roger, others as James; confused in what to call me, a colleague called me RoJam and the nickname stuck.
