Specialization: Computer Science

I am a junior at Champlain College, studying Computer & Digital Forensics with a minor in Computer Science. I’m from upstate New York, I have 6 dogs, and I always love learning new things!

During the school year I work as a Research Assistant at the Leahy Center for Digital Investigation. I have worked on a few projects such as: Malware Analysis, Bluetooth Tracking Analysis, Application Analysis and Forensic Tool Evaluation.

Over the summer of 2018, I had the fantastic opportunity to work as a Computer Forensics intern at Sony in Herndon, VA. Some of the new and exciting things I learned from my internship are as follows: ISP/JTAG Extractions, x86 Assembly, Simple Reverse Engineering, and Malware Analysis.

In my spare time, I work with my professor Yogesh Khatri on his project Mac_Apt, which is a Python based framework that parses various Mac OS artifacts. I’ve written a few plugins for Yogesh, which include: Print Jobs Plugin, iMessage Plugin, iDevice Backup Plugin, and GUI for the entire project (in progress).

I also work on a few side projects that, when ready, I'll publish to my own website- farleyforensics.com
