Research:
Cyber Security, Network Analysis, Data Mining, Machine Learning and Mobile Computing. I work on understanding social aspects of cyber-attacks. I try to figure out why hackers from one country attack another country. I am trying to find why there are more attacks on a few countries and, what changes in cyber policies can help to improve the situation.
