My name is Balaji Kodali and I major in Computer Science and Mathematics with a minor in Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students (ACES). Previously, I have interned at Peace Corps, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, and the UMBC Technology Research Center. All of these experiences have led me to further pursue cybersecurity through the ACES minor and the SANS Technology Institute where I received three certifications (GSEC, GCIH, & GCIA). My future aspirations are to reach a point where I can confidently call myself an expert in cybersecurity. It is an honor to get one step closer to my goals at the ARLIS where I will be given an opportunity to cultivate my passion for cybersecurity.
