I am an assistant professor at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at WPI with a collaborative appointment in the Department of Computer Science. Before joining WPI I spent two years at the Center for Cryptology and Information Security (CCIS) at Florida Atlantic University. I received my Ph.D. in ECE from Ruhr University Bochum, Germany. There I worked as a member of the Horst Goertz Institute (HGI) in the embedded security group of Prof. Christof Paar.
My research interests are in:


Spring 2015: Applied Cryptography and Physical Attacks (ECE 579C)
Fall 2014: Computer Architecture (ECE 505)
D Term 2014: Introduction to Cryptography and Communication Security (ECE 480X)
Fall 2013: Cryptography and Data Security (ECE/CS 578)
Spring 2013: Applied Cryptography and Physical Attacks (ECE 579C)
