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 discovery (static analysis, fuzzing, and symbolic execution), elimination (auto patching and verification), exploit (automated generation and runtime prevention).
To prospective students: I'm looking for motivated students who share my academic interests and have a solid background in computer systems and/or security. If you are interested, I look forward to hearing from you!
