    I’m a Data Scientist at Cisco Umbrella who identifies unclassified threat vectors, discovers emerging trends in malware distribution, and analyzes and evaluates the impact of security threats on customers. My current research focuses on the significance of cryptocurrency in the ever-evolving threat landscape, which abets malicious actors to remain anonymous while purchasing infrastructure and avariciously amassing profit which has been unprecedented in traditional financial markets in recent history. I speak at international and national conferences and regularly contribute to the Cisco Umbrella Security Blog. My background is in data mining, analytics, security research, and data visualization. I live in San Francisco with my wife, son and our rescue dog Spock.
