Assistant Professor


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • In general, my research area is system and software security. I focus on revolutionizing exploitation techniques, formalizing weird machine, and using outcomes of these research to design protections in a quantitative approach for infrastructure cyber-systems (e.g., OS kernels and cryptography libraries).
