I am an Assistant Professor at the Computer Science department of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). I also hold a collaborative appointment of Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department.
My current research interests are: Medical Cyber-Physical Systems and Security, Trust and Reputation Management, and Internet & Web Security.
I am particularly interested in secure interoperable medical device systems, environment-coupled security solutions for body area networks. I also work on understanding the role of trust and reputation in distributed systems with applications in internet protocols, crowd-sourcing collaborative environments, and vehicular networks.

Body area networks (BANs) are networks of wireless sensors and medical devices embedded in clothing, worn on or implanted in the body, and have the potential to revolutionize healthcare by enabling pervasive healthcare.
This book lays the foundations of how BANs can be redesigned from a cyber-physical systems (CPS) perspective to be safe, secure and sustainable.
Introducing cutting-edge theoretical and practical techniques and taking into account the unique environment-coupled characteristics of BANs, the book examines how we can re-imagine the design of safe, secure and sustainable BANs.
