I am a PhD candidate in the CS department at Purdue University co-advised by Prof. Gene Spafford and Prof. Mike Atallah. My background is in Computer Science and Information Security. I completed my MSc in Information Security at the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway, University of London and my BSc in Computer Science from King Saud University.

Broadly, my area of interest is Information Security. More specifically, I am interested in three major areas; the use of deception in security, usable security and authentication. My PhD thesis is on “Using Deception to Enhance Security” and my master thesis was on the “Economics of Identity Management Systems”.

I previously worked on improving the security of Chrome at Google and Firefox at Mozilla. I was a Teaching Fellow at Purdue University and I have worked as an instructor at King Saud University.
