Research Interests

Dr. Masoumzadeh's research interests revolve around information security, privacy, and trust in modern computing systems. He is interested in developing theories and mechanisms for protecting information in complex systems such as online social networks and for enabling data sharing while preserving user privacy. In addition to the theories in the security/privacy domain, he is inspired by the work in formal methods, knowledge representation and reasoning, data mining, and information system design among others.

More particular research topics include theoretical models and mechanisms for specification, verification, analysis, and testing of access control policies; their application in online social networks; browser security; privacy-preserving data sharing and mining of complex data such as graphs; privacy-enhancing technologies in domains such as web and location-based services.
