I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. I completed my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), advised by Prof. David Nicol. I was a postdoc researcher in the Department of Computer Science, advised
by Prof. Matthew Caesar.

Research Interests

Trustworthy cyber-physical critical infrastructures, simulation modeling and analysis, software-defined networking, cyber-security, and parallel and distributed simulation. More details are available at our Research Group website.

We have Ph.D. RA openings for strong students in the areas of networks and systems (click here for details).
For master and undergraduate students to get involved in our research projects, find more info here.
