I am a Ph.D. candidate in Informatics and received a M.S. in Informatics in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University Bloomington. Previously, I obtained a B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana Cali in Colombia. I am a recipient of the best paper award at the 9th International Workshop on Managing Insider Security Threats in conjuntion with the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS). In the past, I have done research internships at Cisco Systems, Inc. with the Advanced Security Research Group. Here is a link to an official bio and my CV.
My research lies at the intersection of network science, data science, and computer security. I am especially interested in the development of analytical and data-driven models to understand and mitigate anomalies in complex systems. Applications range across multiple disciplines, including, Internet routing, prediction of exceptional events in social media, and insider threat modeling in user-system interactions. I also care about the economic and policy implications derived from these solutions. Here is a word cloud built out of the abstracts of my papers.
