Today, after 7 years of rigorous work and dedication, I learned that I received my tenure and promoted to Associate Professor of Information Technology at Penn State University, Abington College. During these seven years, I learned a lot of things including how to manage my time and help my students to manage their time. I published academic articles in various venues. I collaborated with multiple faculties. Most importantly, I learned how to do work life balance especially with 2 boys who are now 6.5 and 4 years old.

I would like to thank my wife for her dedicated support. Without her, this journey would not be the same. I also would like to thank all of my collaborators for their wisdom which helped me to grow. Finally, I would like to thank all agencies and institutions that supported my research during this process. Without them, we would not be able to do all this amazing research.

Now, I am moving to next part of my journey and of course enjoy my time a little bit over the summer.
