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 am the 2014 Vice Chair and 2015 General Chair for the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy ("Oakland"). I am guest editing a special issue of IEEE Security & Privacy magazine on Energy Sector Control Systems. I co-organized a Dagstuhl seminar on the insider threat in December, 2012. I teach Computer Security in Health Informatics annually in the UC Davis School of Medicine.
Major student achievements: Enthusiastic congratulations to my Ph.D student Adrian Chavez, who recently won a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) and to my Ph.D student Sisi Duan, who recently won a Leiv Eiriksson mobility programme award!
