I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of San Francisco. I also teach courses for the Masters in Analytics (MSAN) program. I graduated with my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Davis under the guidance of Matt Bishop, Sean Peisert, and many others at the SecLab. I received my B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, studying networking and computer security with Ken Dick and Blaine Burnham at the Peter Kiewit Institute. I also frequently collaborate with my significant other, Sean Whalen.
My recent research focuses on applied data visualization (especially to problems in computer security) and computer science education. Please see my Publications for more information.
