About Me

I earned my bachelor's degree from Widener University in 2013 and proceeded to earn my PhD from Drexel University in 2020. After teaching at Drexel for a year, I am now back at Widener as a professor. 

My teaching interests include introductory courses, security and privacy, and artificial intelligence and machine learning. I have also taught courses on software quality, validation, and verification.

Research Interests

My research focuses on application of machine learning to digital privacy and security. My dissertation was on applying stylometry - the study of style - to identifying the authors of collaborative documents and programs. I am interested in continuing research in applications of stylometry, but also in expanding to other applications of machine learning.
