I'm a fifth-year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at NC State University. I'm advised by Dr. William Enck, and am a member of the Wolfpack Security and Privacy Research (WSPR) Lab. Before joining NCSU, I received my Bachelor of Science in Computer and Information Science from Cleveland State University.

My research focuses on the design and analysis of security and privacy mechanisms in mobile devices. In general, both security mechanisms and program analysis techniques fail to consider what behaviors users expect to occur within applications. My research seeks to bridge the semantic gap between program behavior and user expectations by using program analysis techniques and text analytics as a proxy for user expectations. Overall, my research aims to apply these analysis techniques to the security domain to allow a system to autonomously make informed security decisions.
