About Me

I am George and Ann Fisher Distinguished Professor in Engineering in the Computer Science Department of the University of Illinois. I teach and do research on security and privacy for computer systems. My current primary projects relate to security and privacy in the healthcare and electric power sectors and for networking. I am the director of Illinois Security Lab (ISL) where I work with a talented group of students, postdoctoral researchers, and research staff.

I teach courses in the area of security and privacy¬†such as Advanced Computer Security (CS563/ECE524) and Computer Security II (CS463/ECE424). CS563. In 2018 I initiated a course on social impacts of computer technology entitled CS498CD Cyber Dystopia Analyzing the Adverse Impacts of Advances in Computer Technology. Here’s a link to a description of the course.
