Associate Professor

Dr. Lagesse received his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2009. Prior to coming to UW Bothell, he held positions as a research scientist in the cyber security research groups at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and BBN Technologies.



Dr. Lagesse's expertise is in the areas of cyber security and pervasive systems. His current projects include building security mechanisms to protect against adversarial machine learning attacks and the development of realistic, dynamically created virtual systems for security and education. His other work involves research into enabling developers to more easily write and deploy secure code in mobile and heterogeneous environments and mechanisms to encourage more secure use of software by users in such environments.
