My current foci pertain to control system and cyber-physical system security, and security in high-performance computing and high-bandwidth networking environments. I have also worked in areas including intrusion detection, computer forensics, vulnerability analysis, insider threats, elections, security metrics, security in health informatics, and other areas. This page lists a number of the research projects that I am or have recently been working on.
I am extremely grateful to the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy Office of Science, the Cybersecurity for Energy Delivery Systems (CEDS) program, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection (I3P), and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, for supporting the research that my graduate students and I are conducting.

"Human history can be viewed as a slowly dawning awareness that we are members of a larger group. Initially our loyalties were to ourselves and our immediate family, next, to bands of wandering hunter-gatherers, then to tribes, small settlements, city-states, nations. We have broadened the circle of those we love. We have now organized what are modestly described as super-powers, which include groups of people from divergent ethnic and cultural backgrounds working in some sense together—surely a humanizing and character building experience. If we are to survive, our loyalties must be broadened further, to include the whole human community, the entire planet Earth."
-Professor Carl Sagan, Cosmos (1980)
