Research interests

My current work includes analysis of Internet attackers' financial successes, investigating human factors in effective Internet security mechanisms, and employing economic analysis tools to cybercrime.

I am very interested in new collaborations, motivated students, and lively conversation regarding security research - please email me if you are interested in any of these!
