Research:

My research focuses on using machine learning in cybersecurity research and intelligence to analyze large datasets to find criminal activity. Specifically I work with cryptocurrency and DNS to develop investigation and detection techniques to find malicious activity.

Some of my previous projects include using domain generation algorithms to track criminal groups, mining malware configurations, and tracking extremist fundraising and finances in cryptocurrency.
