I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the Graduate Center of CUNY. My interests range from computer and network security to dynamic systems, cellular automata, and computational neuroscience. In particular, I am interested in how network properties can lead to understanding network dynamics and applications of these properties to computer, biological, social, and neural networks. In 2011, I presented a paper on “Heterogeneity and its impact on Thermal Robustness and Attractor Density” at the Complex Adaptive Systems conference in Chicago. As an Adjunct I have developed and taught computer, data, and network security courses at CUNY. I am currently working at the Taxi Limousine Commission as a computer security analyst consulting on computer and network security policies.
