About Ben

My research goal is to provide comprehensive situation understanding and decision support for all areas integrating cyber systems. As part of this, I research the nexus of cyber security and kinetic effect to understand the true impacts of cyber-attack, best-practice automated analysis and visual techniques to aid decision support.

I am a researcher and practitioner working in the Digital Forensics, Cyber Security, Knowledge Representation and Visual Analytics domains. My research interests include novel approaches to securing computers and networks, automated learning from large datasets, forensic analysis of non-traditional devices, cyber security, cyber situation awareness, knowledge management, network analysis and visual analytics. I believe in real-world research that helps the community at large, and implementation is a large part of this. Additionally, I also work with the US Naval Research Laboratory, conducting research on the Tor network.
