My current research work at University of Texas at San Antonio is primarily focused towards uncovering and solving privacy and security problems in smart home and other IoT devices. My doctoral dissertation at Wichita State University was focused around the privacy and security aspects of connected wearable devices, supported by the National Science Foundation and the Air Force Research Laboratory. Research work for my Master's thesis was focused on access control mechanisms for online social networks. Some of my recent research publications are listed below.
