Student research

Although I don't necessarily have open paid research positions right now, I'm always looking for bright and motivated graduate and undergraduate students who share my research interests or just want to learn more about security. If you are already at KSU, email me, or schedule a meeting, or just stop by my office (2171 Engineering Hall). Tell me about yourself, your experience with security, and what you might enjoy working on.

If you aren't at KSU then I would encourage you to apply and indicate an interest in computer and information security. Note: While I try to answer all emails, I don't always get the chance. A way to make yourself stand out in a good way is to have specific questions, comments, or suggestions regarding security research or papers. A way to make yourself stand out in a bad way is to ask questions to which you can easily find the answer yourself.

I have the privilege of working with a number of bright and talented students (but the lab photo is outdated):

I usually sign my email with PGP/GPG. (I used to do it more often – almost always – but some webmail and mobile email clients balk when seeing S/MIME or PGP/MIME. Hopefully the situation will improve.) My key fingerprint is D11D 886D 2805 6735 609B 8B0E 6CA8 C576 F6DC 58DA
