I am an Associate Professor in Computer Science at Baldwin Wallace University. My research focuses on how mobile and internet of things (IoT) can benefit the community, including, how we can better understand what mobile applications do with our data. I lead the MOPS research group which focuses on this research. I also lead the CS+ group which does community outreach in the region to offer opportunities for young minds to learn computing. On this site you will find information on classes that I am teaching, research interests, projects, and more. If you are interested in any of the research or projects I am working on, please contact me.

Mobile Security and Privacy / Mobile in the Community / IOT

I am the faculty adviser of the MObile, Privacy, and Security (MOPS) research group. We have a strong team of students that perform research in areas of mobile security and privacy, IOT, and applied solutions that benefit the community. This research is important because we need to find ways to inform users in how mobile applications use their data, find ways to protect their data, and find ways where mobile and IOT solutions can solve problems in our community! More information can be found on the team website.
