David A. Mohaisen

I am a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Central Florida. My research is in systems, security, and privacy. My recent research addressed various questions related to ML/AI, malware analysis, web systems, IoT, wearables, and blockchains. I obtained my PhD from the University of Minnesota, in 2012. I spent seven years (in total) before and after attending Minnesota in the research and development industry. At UCF, I direct the Security and Analytics Lab (SEAL), where I have been fortunate to work with several hardworking graduate and undergraduate students.
