Upcoming events that I'm involved with:
I do research in computer security. I am currently particularly interested in vulnerability analysis, software assurance, security metrics, policy modeling and analysis, elections and electronic voting, smart grid security, and the insider threat. I also teach and advise grad students. I occasionally do some consulting.
What's new: I was the General Chair of the 36th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy ("Oakland"). I chaired the DOE ASCR Cybersecurity Workshop in early 2015 and edited the subsequent report, and chaired the DOE ASCR Cybersecurity for Scientific Computing Integrity Workshop in June 2015 and also edited the subsequent report for that workshop.
I guest edited the Nov/Dec 2014 special issue of IEEE Security & Privacy magazine on Energy Sector Control Systems. I teach Computer Security in Health Informatics annually in the UC Davis School of Medicine.
