This is what I do
Research and Development
My current research focuses on spam and scams in the telephony networks. These involve deep understanding from areas such as network systems, communcation protocols, authentication schemes, identity management, risk assessment and cyber crime analysis, among others. Telephone spam, including SMS, voicemail and VoIP spam, has become an increasingly prevalent issue worldwide. The goal in this research area is to develop simple, effective and deployable solutions in combating telephone spam, similar to what has been achieved in defenses against email spam.
Software and Hacks
I work on various software and coding projects. I like to involve myself in tech meetups, hackathon competitions, workshops designing and implementing cool ideas, and have won some great prizes. I'm also a strong supporter of Scala, my personal favorite among all other programming languages.
This is what I live by
