I am a PhD candidate at Northeastern University, advised by Alina Oprea and I am affiliated with Network and Distributed Systems Security Lab (NDS2).

I am generally interested in efficient threat detection using machine learning techniques. Currently, I am working on investigating robust and effective detectors to protect large scale networks with information sharing across organizations. I have worked on large-scale malware detection systems, specifically focusing on self-propagating malware.

In the past, I also worked on implicit authentication mechanisms for IoT ecosystems, and performed experiments in our IoT test lab, MON(IOT)R.

Prior to joining Northeastern, I was a software developer at SAP, working on SAP VORA, a distributed in-memory database solution on Hadoop data.
