Adam Oest
Hello!
My name is Adam Oest.
I am a computer science Ph.D student at the SEFCOM lab at Arizona State University. My research interests include web security, mobile security, online privacy, and CS education.

My current work, under the supervision of Dr. Gail-Joon Ahn and in cooperation with PayPal, focuses on protecting users from social engineering attacks by enhancing anti-phishing infrastructure.

My hobbies include photography and web development. Since 2006, I have been running PentaxForums.com, a highly-active community devoted to providing support for Pentax camera users.
