I love to teach, but I also love to learn—and teaching offers lots of opportunities for learning. Whether it's researching a topic related to cybersecurity and artificial intelligence or questions or exploring new ideas for how to teach those state of art technologies, I get to explore new ideas a lot. My ultimate objective is to make big difference in the lives of my students.
