Concordia Institute for Information Systems Engineering
I am primarily interested in real-world systems security and privacy - how security systems miserably fail in reality, and how to design systems to survive against advanced attacks. Some topics of interest include: Android/iOS, IoT, cloud/CDN, CPS and hardware security; anti-surveillance tools; authentication; privacy; usable security; ransomware, phishing, and financial security.

Over the years, my research has been funded by several organizations. I am thankful to all of them. Selected list of grants: NSERC Discovery Grant, OPC Contributions Program, CIRA Community Investment Program, Mitacs Accelerate (with Ericsson and Irdeto), NSERC Engage Grant (with Huawei and Irdeto), FQRNT, and Concordia University.
