Introduction

I am passionate about teaching and learning Cybersecurity and Information Technology. I began my career as an Information Security analyst and have been involved in various roles related to cybersecurity before joining UW Tacoma. I grew up in India before moving to the U.S. for further studies in Information Systems and Criminology from the University of Memphis in Tennessee. So far at UW Tacoma, I have taught over 700 STEM students and continue to do so. I spoke at the conference such as RSA 2021, Grace Hopper USA 2016, Richard Tapia Diversity USA 2016, World Comp 2012, ICDCIT 2013, etc.
