F/A-18F (VFA-2) and F-14D (VF-2), 2003

I served as a Naval Flight Officer in F-14s and F/A-18s from 1995-2005, including WestPac deployments on USS Kitty Hawk, Carl Vinson, Constellation, and Abraham Lincoln.

Research Interests

My primary research interest is in cyber security, particularly malware detection and classification. I've also researched processor design security, looking at high-level processor designs (HDL files) for adherence to security-relevant properties, and searching for Hardware Trojans in processor designs. I'm interested in cyber warfare generally, and am currently serving as Officer Representative to the USNA competitive cyber team, the Information Warfare Group.
