Michael Haney Associate Professor


Michael Haney is an assistant professor of Computer Science for the University of Idaho and a cybersecurity researcher for the Idaho National Laboratory. He received his master's and doctorate in computer science from the University of Tulsa in 2013 and 2015, respectively. He received a bachelor's in mathematics from the University of Kentucky in 1998. Currently, his research interests are in data visualization, specifically visualizing network and system log data to improve intrusion detection and response for large-scale networks. He studies cyber-security issues of energy assurance supporting a more resilient "smart" infrastructure. His focus here lies in honeypot research — creating systems that mimic real power generation systems, oil refineries or water treatment plants, and recording and studying the cyber-attacks against these systems.
