I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Florida State University, in Tallahassee, FL. I have research interests in Digital Forensics, Artificial Intelligence (Expert Systems and Knowledge Representation), Computer and Network Security. More specifically I am working on developing disk forensics toolkit. I am working with Dr. Sudhir Aggarwal.

Learn about what I do

I design and build cool stuff.

Designing intelligent systems for digital forensics investigations and closely related problems.

Automated Disk Forensics Toolkit

Designing a novel tool for the purpose of assisting non-technical forensics investigators to perform various investigations.

Identifying Passwords Stored on Disk

This work is a collaborative work with Shiva Houshmand Yazdi. Paper will be available soon.
