I am an Assistant Professor in the department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC Riverside. I earned by Ph.D. in Computer Science from Georgia Tech. I was fortunate to be supervised by professor Wenke Lee and Taesoo Kim.
My research interests include system security, program analysis and verification, and operating systems. My current research focuses on vulnerability related topics, including
- Advancing techniques for finding vulnerabilities in binaries, OS kernels, machine learning applications, and smart grid.
- Eliminating vulnerabilities through automatic patch generation and verification.
- New exploit techniques and automated exploit generation.
- Runtime exploit prevention with software hardware co-design.
To prospective students: I'm looking for motivated students (Ph.D, master, visiting) who share my academic interests and have a solid background in computer systems, architecture, or security. If you are interested, I look forward to hearing from you!
