About Me

During the 2009 Easter in Titisee, Germany.

My current research interest is on the intersection between social computing and computer security, focusing on: (1) characterizing cyber attacks in socio-technical, web- based systems and, (2) building effective and efficient defense systems to fight against emerging web-scale abusive automation in these systems.

Currently, I am a Research Scientist in Cyber Security at QCRI. Here is my CV.

Before QCRI, I was a PhD student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of British Columbia (UBC).

Over the years, I had the opportunity to work with really smart people at Microsoft, Telefonica, Facebook, Sophos, SAP, and Intel doing research-related tasks with measurable business impact.
