Learning and Growing as a PhD Researcher in Digital Forensics and Computer Science

It's hard to believe that it's already been seven months since I started my my research at Augusta University in digital forensics, machine learning, and cyber security. Time has flown by as I've immersed myself in my research, learning about new technologies and techniques that I never would have even known existed before.

As I look back on these past seven months, I'm amazed at how much I've learned and how much my research has grown. I've had the opportunity to work with some truly brilliant minds in the field, and have had the chance to contribute my own ideas and insights to our work.

One of the most rewarding aspects of this experience has been seeing the tangible results of my research. Whether it's through the development of a new tool or the identification of a previously unknown vulnerability, it's incredibly satisfying to see my work make a real impact.

While the road through academia can be challenging at times, it's also been an incredible journey filled with growth and discovery. I'm excited to see where the next few years will take me, and I can't wait to see what new discoveries and insights I'll uncover along the way.

As I embark on the next phase of my education and career, I am excited to take on a number of new challenges and projects. Currently, I am working on three research projects that are at the forefront of my focus. In addition, I am beginning my PhD classes, which I am eager to dive into and learn as much as possible.

I am also taking on the task of learning about setting up and hosting a website and mail server. This is a new area for me, and I am excited to add this skill to my toolkit.

Finally, I am committed to continuing my learning journey and expanding my knowledge of programming languages, particularly those that are applicable to new use cases and paradigms that I have not yet encountered. I believe that staying up-to-date on the latest technologies and approaches is essential for success in this field, and I am eager to take on this challenge.

Overall, I am excited to see what the future holds and to continue pushing myself to be the best that I can be.
