Research Interests

Major research areas focus on designing AI-based analytics platform to provide intelligent analysis (AI) capability to multidiscipline. Working towards to create knowledge-based response systems for information and communication systems (ICS) inspired by human immunology. Since majority of cloud-based ICS are based on lightweight operating system level virtualization and microservice architecture, my research examines highly scalable and automatically responding approaches in different AI models. Currently, working together with researchers from multiple institutes including NOAA, University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), Auburn University, and University of Georgia to develop AI analytics platform.

Participated in AI projects applying deep learning models such as recurrent and convolutional neural networks to existing research areas including analysis of malign network traffic and privacy issues of Internet of Things (IoT) home devices while worked at UTSA. As a principal researcher at Samsung, I involved many interesting cyber security projects including mobile app penetration and cloud computing assessment.


Teaching Interests

Teaches courses in security analytics, deep learning, information security, and some programming courses including Linux system programming, C++, and Python.
