I graduated from the University of Maryland Baltimore County with a B.S in Mathematics and a minor in Statistics in May 2018. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Information Sciences and Technology at The Pennsylvania State University under the guidance of Dr. Dongwon Lee at the PIKE Lab. My research interests are Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Data mining in the application domain of Cybersecurity.

Specifically, I am interested in research that leverages data mining and machine learning techniques to solve issues that have security implications. Currently, I am working on a project that uses NLP (Natural Language Processing) techniques to distinguish machine-generated texts from human-generated texts. My ultimate goal is to find subtle linguistic patterns that differentiate human-generated texts from machine-generated in order to better detect these text-generators.
