Note to Prospective M.Sc. / Ph.D. Students
Please read this before you send me email asking me to advise you in your thesis...
I have lots of graduate students and very little time, so I am taking on new students very slowly, if at all.
Here are some points for you to consider before contacting me:
• I will not advise "project" MSc students (without thesis). Don't bother to ask.
• Not yet a TAU student, please don't contact me. By the time you enroll and take the required courses, 1-2 years will pass, and I have no idea what will happen by then...
• If you have low grades and are not admitted to the MSc program at TAU EE please do not contact me. I will not write you a letter agreeing to advise you.
• You have a better chance if you take my advanced courses ("Topics in Information Security" or “Introduction to Information Security”).
• Very high grades in general, and in my courses in particular, improve your chances.
• Many (although not all) the things I like to do involve computer programming and a lot of it. If you have good computer skills, and enjoy using them, this is a plus.
• If you are genuinely interested in computer/network security, and know something about this field already (from previous jobs etc.), this can help.
• If you are still interested: Please send me your CV, grade averages, and a brief ASCII biographic sketch.
Note to Prospective Ph.D. candidates
I won't take you on as a PhD student unless I've worked with you already in some capacity.
This usually means that unless you did your MSc with me, you need to:
• pass the bar I use for MSc students
• work with me for some 6 months or so, without the formalities of enrolling as an "official" student.
This means that you won't be getting a scholarship or a teaching assistant position from TAU until you do become a "regular" student.
