I am a Cybersecurity PhD candidate at Northeastern in Boston, MA. My research advisor is Engin Kirda. As a research assistant, my main job is to do an academic research to tackle certain problems in the field of cybersecurity. Particularly, I have been focusing on the issues of Internet Safety and Web Security.
Research InterestsIn the first two and a half years of my PhD, I did research on misinformation. I tried to tackle multiple challenges including the detection of fake news articles on the web, detection of fake quote memes on the social media and finally understanding manual fact-checking techniques through textual analysis of fact-check reports.
Lately, I have been doing research on Web Security problems. I usually explore attacks targeting web applications and systems, and sometimes work on their prevention.
