Research Interests

My research generally involves measurement and modeling of computer systems. I am particularly interested in using machine learning to counter online tracking and surveillance. I lead the Internet Research Lab at Iowa. Our active research topics include:

  • Privacy & Security (Web, Mobile, IoT, Social Media)

  • Networked Systems (Browsers, CDN, Cellular, Video)
