Biography: 

Tudor Dumitras is an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering and a member of the Maryland Cybersecurity Center.

Dumitras’ research focuses primarily on data-driven (Big Data) approaches to problems in system security and dependability. He works on building infrastructures for data storage and analysis to improve real-world systems.

Dumitras received his doctorate in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2010. He was most recently a senior research engineer at Symantec Research Labs, where he designed and implemented the Worldwide Intelligence Network Environment (WINE), a platform for conducting data intensive experiments in cybersecurity.
