Research Interests

My primary research interests are in embedded and cyberphysical systems security. Beyond those, I am interested in a number of topics such as tech policy—particularly 4th amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures as it relates to computers—modern algebra, category theory, cryptography, programming languages, and compilers.

I think research is a social activity and I enjoy collaboration with researchers both inside and outside of UIC.

Election Data

This technical report used data from real IRV elections. This data is collected in a common format, along with the scripts that generate the data from a more verbose format used by some counties. In addition, the code used to generate the results in the report is available here.
