Background


My research interests are focused on usable security. I am interested in usability and user factors that impact cybersecurity and can be utilized to optimize and improve security tools and policies. I am also interested in cybersecurity education and have experience teaching courses in computing, cybersecurity, networks, and programming. I recently defended my dissertation at Marymount University under Dr. Liu.

I have taught undergraduate coursework at George Mason University, University of Maryland Global Campus, and Northern Virginia Community College in computing, cybersecurity, and information systems. My teaching interests include core computer science, programming, networking, and cybersecurity courses
