I am currently a Research Associate at the Army High Performance Computing Research Center, Computer Science Department, University of Minnesota. I am working on problems related to applying data mining techniques to intrusion detection together with Prof. Vipin Kumar and Prof. Jaideep Srivastava. We are leading the MINDS (Minnesota Intrusion Detection System) project.

I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the Center for Information Science and Technology, College of Science and Technology, Temple University in December 2001. In August 2000 I transferred from School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Washington State University, where I was for three years.

I received the M.S. degree in Computer Science in 1997. and B.S. degree in Computer Science and Computer Engineering in 1994. from the School of Electrical Engineering at University of Belgrade.
