Tudor Dumitraș is an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering and a member of the Maryland Cybersecurity Center (MC2).

Dumitraș’s research focuses primarily on data-driven (big data) approaches to problems in system security and dependability. He works on building infrastructures for data storage and analysis to improve real-world systems.

Dumitraș was most recently a senior research engineer at Symantec Research Labs, where he designed and implemented the Worldwide Intelligence Network Environment (WINE), a platform for conducting data intensive experiments in cybersecurity.

He received his doctorate in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2010.
