Amir Masoumzadeh's Photo I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at SUNY Albany, and co-director of the Albany Lab for Privacy & Security (ALPS).

My research interests revolve around information security, privacy, and trust in computing environments. Check out my research page or ALPS for more specific topics.

I received my PhD in Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh, and my Master’s and Bachelor’s in Computer Science/Engineering from Sharif University of Technology and Ferdowsi University, respectively.

I am currently recruiting PhD students to join my group and engage in exciting projects such as Black-Box Learning of Web Application Authorization Policies.
