Jay Koven

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering where I am a member of the security and privacy research group working on data forensics. The focus of my dissertation research is the criminal investigation of large email datasets. I am currently collaborating with the United States Secret Service to develop a methodology and tools to allow investigators to find emails and evidence when dealing with large email datasets.
My computer science education at Iona fully prepared me for the academic challenges I faced when I started the Ph.D. program at NYU. The core course requirements and qualification exam were very challenging. However, I found that I was ready due to the excellent teaching and guidance I received while earning my master's degree at Iona.
