I am a professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of California at Davis. I am one of the co-directors of the Computer Security Laboratory here. I’m also the faculty advisor to the UC Davis Cyber Security Club. vHere’s a picture of me at our daughter Caroline’s wedding. I’m dressed as The Dude from The big Lebowski
I do research in computer security. Currently, my interests seem to focus on election processes, data sanitization, and the insider problem. I also like teaching.
A second edition of my book Computer Security: Art and Science was published in November 2018. Another version of the first edition, Introduction to Computer Security, was published in 2004, again by Addison-Wesley Professional. Check them out and see which you prefer.
Graduate Admissions. Click here for information on being admitted to do graduate work in information assurance or computer security, including a link to the on-line application. Please do not write me asking about your chances of getting in, or if I will admit you. I get too many such letters to answer them, and my answers are the same for everyone: I don’t know, and I do not have the authority to, respectively.
