Welcome to my home page. I am an associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am a member of the Coordinated Science Laboratory, the Information Trust Institute, and the Center for Reliable and High-Performance Computing. I joined the University of Illinois in August 2005; previously I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of California, Berkeley under Doug Tygar. I received my Ph.D. in 2003 from the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University while I was a Visiting Graduate Student in the Computer Science Department at Rice University; my advisor throughout graduate school was Dave Johnson. I received my B.S. Magna Cum Laude in 1997 in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Washington.

My current research interests are in network security and wireless networks. My general research interests are in security and systems, with emphasis on the areas of secure systems and mobile communications. I have published papers in the areas of secure Internet routing, DDoS-resiliant forwarding, secure routing in wireless ad hoc networks, security and anonymity in peer-to-peer networks, efficient cryptographic mechanisms for routing security, and the design and evaluation of multihop wireless network routing protocols, including Quality-of-Service mechanisms for ad hoc networks.
