Eric Sun is an Assistant Professor in the College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) at Drexel University. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Arizona State University, co-advised by Prof. Gail-Joon Ahn and Prof. Adam Doupé.

His research interests lie broadly in the area of computer security and privacy. In his research, he applies data-driven analytics to study real-world computer security problems and investigates human vulnerabilities by analyzing users' security behaviors and decision-making processes. In particular, some of his research focuses on e-crime, threat intelligence, underground economies, Internet fraud, and web security.
