Benjamin E. Ujcich


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Georgetown University. I am a member of the Department’s SecLab, where we investigate information assurance and computer and network security challenges.


My research broadly focuses on secure systems and network design. In particular, I am interested in secure future networking architectures, including software-defined networking (SDN), programmable control planes, programmable data planes (e.g., OpenFlow and P4), and intent-based networking (IBN).

I am also interested in how legal and regulatory policy contexts affect secure systems and network design with emphases on data protection, data provenance, and accountability.

Please see my research projects, teaching, and CV for more information.

Working With Me

I am currently recruiting prospective PhD students with security, systems, and/or networking backgrounds who are interested in computer security research. Please contact me by e-mail if interested! Note that faculty in the CS Department do not make admissions decisions.

The deadline for Fall 2021 admission is January 15, 2021 (December 15, 2020 preferred).
