I received my PhD from the Cheriton School of Computer Science at University of Waterloo, and my MSc from the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at University of Ottawa. My research interests lie on privacy, security, and trust in autonomy/AI, and cross-disciplinary research on the intersections of computer science and other disciplines. If you are interested in conducting research in our Privacy, Security, and Trust in Autonomy Lab, please contact me. As before, priority is given to minority students, including Hispanics, students of color, and women in engineering/computer science. We also thank our research sponsors: ARO-AFOSR, NSF, AFRL, FC2, and I-Sense.
