I am an associate professor in the department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC Riverside. Before joining UC Riverside, I was with Syracuse University from September 2009 to June 2016, as assistant professor and then associate professor. I obtained my Ph.D in Computer Science from the College of William and Mary in 2009, while I spent 4 years at Carnegie Mellon University and later at UC Berkeley. More details about me can be found in my CV.
My research interests lie in computer security. In particular, I'm endeavoring to develop new program analysis and virtualization techniques and applying these techniques to improve computer and software security. I am a recipient of 2011 NSF CAREER award.
If you are interested in system security research, please stop by or drop me an email. Check my Calendar, before you want to make an appointment with me.
I am the undergraduate faculty advisor for the CS program. For undergraduate students who need advise for issues related to course transfer, major change, minor degrees, etc., please first contact staff members, such as Janeth Jauregui and Terri Phonharath. Their contact information is listed here. They are very capable to address the majority of your requests. If there is any issue they cannot handle, they will forward it to me. So please always contact them first!
I have several RA and postdoc openings available. If you have strong programming skills (e.g., C/C++, Java, etc.) and have good understanding about operating systems (e.g., Linux, Windows, Android, iOS, etc.), please send me your CV.
For postdoc candidates, you need to have strong publication records in security, systems, or programming language.
