My research is in computer security measurement. I apply tools from economics to explain incident data and interpret the incentives and strategies of malicious actors. I aim to improve understanding of how cybercriminals operate so that we might more effectively dismantle their networks. My research focuses on the remediation of web-based malware and cryptocurrency scams.
