Short Bio

I am an Assistant Professor in Computer Science at the University of Winnipeg. Prior to that, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Queen's University in Kingston. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the University of Montreal in 2018. I am currently leading several high-impact and interdisciplinary research projects in Theoretical and Applied Cybersecurity. My research mainly focuses on designing security and resilience frameworks for large-scale networked systems and adopts a rigorous approach to strategic defense through the lens of Artificial Intelligence. I have published peer-reviewed research papers extensively while fostering intensive collaborations with several universities in Canada including McGill University, University of Montreal, and Queen's University.
