Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering
I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at SMU. My research focuses on the economics of information security, the study of electronic crime, and the development of policy for strengthening security. I'm also interested in digital currencies and critical infrastructure protection. I serve as Director of the Economics and Social Sciences program at the Darwin Deason Institute for Cyber Security. I am also a Fellow in SMU's John Goodwin Tower Center for Political Studies. Finally, I am Research Advisor to StopBadware.
Effective August 2015, I am joining the faculty in the Tandy School of Computer Science at the University of Tulsa. At TU I will be the Tandy Assistant Professor of Cyber Security and Information Assurance. In Fall 2015 I will be teaching a special topics course on Security Economics at TU. Enrollment is open to graduate students and advanced undergraduates. The course material will be similar to CSE 5/7338 that I teach at SMU.
Prior to joining SMU, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) at Harvard University. I have also been the Norma Wilentz Hess Visiting Professor of Computer Science at Wellesley College. I completed my PhD at the University of Cambridge as a Marshall Scholar, supervised by Prof. Ross Anderson.
Together with Prof. David Pym, I am Editor in Chief of the Journal of Cybersecurity (JCS). JCS is a new open-access publication from Oxford University Press, developed specifically to deliver a venue that bridges the many different disciplines and specialties involving information security.
From 2011-2014 I served as a Director and Vice President of the International Financial Cryptography Assocation (IFCA), which organizes the annual Financial Crypto conference. I am also Vice Chair of the IFIP 11.10 Working Group on Critical Infrastructure Protection. For a comprehensive listing of my professional activities, please see my CV.
NOTE: I have multiple funded PhD Research Fellowships available in the areas of security economics, cybercrime measurement and digital currency security. Please contact me if you are interested or have questions.
