Brendan Dolan-Gavitt, Assistant Professor, Computer Science & Engineering, NYU Tandon

With a Ph.D. in computer science from Georgia Tech and a BA in Math and Computer Science from Wesleyan University, Dolan-Gavitt’s research spans many areas of cybersecurity, including program analysis, virtualization security, memory forensics, and embedded and cyber-physical systems. His research focuses on developing techniques to ease or automate the understanding of large, real-world software systems in order to develop novel defenses against attacks, typically by subjecting them to static and dynamic analyses that reveal hidden and undocumented assumptions about their design and behavior.

The NYC Media Lab is dedicated to driving innovation and job growth in media and technology by fostering collaboration between New York City’s universities and companies. The Lab intends to amplify media innovation, build pipelines between companies and academia; while at the same time ensuring that all of these technologies are available to as diverse a community as possible.
