I've been working as an Information Security Analyst for Syracuse University for the past 7 years. I'm part of a team that strives to protect the university data, network infrastructure and users from cyber attacks. My responsibilities include intrusion detection, threat hunting, incident handling and forensics, vulnerability assessment and management, security awareness, and managing the cyber security operations at SU.

I've taken several SANS training courses that focused on securing enterprise networks and completed the following GIAC certifications: GCIH, GPEN, GCIA.

I graduated from Syracuse University in December 2010 with a Master's in Telecom & Network Management and specialized in Information Security Management.

Prior to my job at SU, I worked as a Senior Software Engineer for 3 years.
