Anton (Tony) Dahbura is a researcher in computer science, co-director of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Assured Autonomy, and executive director of the Johns Hopkins Information Security Institute, which is the university's focal point for research and education in information security, assurance and privacy.

He is available to discuss how best to secure cyberspace and the nation's information infrastructure. Such security is more critical now than ever before, and it can be achieved only when the core technology, legal and policy issues are adequately addressed.

Dahbura is also advising students' analytic research of baseball that includes, among other topics, whether batters perform differently in games with wide score margins. He is part owner of the Hagerstown Suns minor league baseball team and, with his wife, Marlaina, provides data analytics consulting for professional teams in Mexico. Dahbura is also a partner with the startup SportsLynx.com, which uses data to help professional clubs around the world find the best players.

His efforts in Mexico were featured in a lengthy feature article in the New York Times.

From 1983 until 1996 he was a researcher at AT&T Bell Laboratories, was a lecturer in Princeton University's computer science department, and was research director at the Motorola Cambridge Research Center in Cambridge, Mass.
