Welcome to my homepage, I am Hang Zhang, currently a 4th yr phd student majored in computer science and advised by Prof. Zhiyun Qian. I am broadly interested in system security research. My past and current research focuses on security analysis (e.g. vulnerability discovery, confirmation, and analysis) for complex software systems like OS kernels, with various methods (e.g. reverse engineering, static and dynamic program analysis, fuzzing).
