After completing his PhD at the University of Pittsburgh, he worked at Carlow College (Pittsburgh, PA); University of Akron (Akron, OH); and Austin Peay State University (Clarksville, TN) before settling at the University of Louisville (Louisville, KY) where he spent 23 years. He started the Information Security program there, which became one of the National Centers of Academic Excellence. He moved to Texas A&M International University (Laredo, TX) as Chairman in 2010. He is now at Texas Southern University (Houston, TX) as the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Research, as well as a distinguished professor in the Jesse H. Jones School of Business. His two books on cloud computing, Security, Trust and Regulatory Aspects of Cloud Computing in Business Environments (IGI Global) and Cloud Computing Basics (Springer), will be published in 2014. He became a naturalized US citizen several years ago.
