Louis F. DeKoven
I completed my Ph.D. at UC San Diego in the Systems and Networking Group under the guidance of Stefan Savage and Geoff Voelker. I spent my time in graduate school using large data sets to detect and disrupt various types of malware and abusive activity.
Following graduate school I joined Facebook in 2019. I work on detecting and understanding targeted threats impacting Facebook users.
