I am a PhD student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering program at the University of Arizona, where I work with Prof. Loukas Lazos. I received my M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Arizona in 2010. Before joining Arizona, I obtained the BS degrees in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics from the Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador, in 2008. My research interests include denial-of-service attacks in wireless networks, privacy protection in wireless sensor networks (WSNs), as well as secure routing algorithms in multichannel wireless networks.
