My research focuses on measurable security in core Internet protocols, Internet-scale cybersecurity systems, and application-level/endpoint protections that can be derived from these. I am the director of the Measurable Security Lab (MSL), and this is the link to the lab’s webpage.

Research in the MSL focuses on evaluating and evolving protections by using measurements and data analysis: measurement-based (or measurable) security. This work involves systems implementation (both measurement apparatuses and endpoint security software), large-scale data analyses, innovations to network protocols, and ultimately developing Internet-scale cybersecurity that works!
