major univeristy. He received his B.S. and M.S. in Computer Engineering
in 1994 and 1997 respectively. For his M.S.,
he worked with a real time
bit error rate simulator, and developed a next generation real time hardware
system for bit error rate simulations. He has developed a 16 bit
RISC microprocessor in VHDL in a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) able
to run compiled 'C' code. His research interests include security
over wireless networks, in particular ad-hoc networks using IPv6.
