I am a fourth year PhD student in the CIS department at Temple University.  I earned my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Messiah College in 2010, and my master’s degree in Software Engineering from Penn State in 2015.  Before returning to school full-time, I worked in industry as a software development consultant, and as a software engineer for Lockheed Martin.

My primary research centers on mobile systems security, with a two-fold focus on privacy and testing for mobile augmented reality systems.  I also have inter-disciplinary projects in applied mobile and IoT solutions to assist older adults suffering from cognitive decline, and in expanding and improving educational practices for undergrads in computer science.
