I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Tulane University. I received my PhD from The Pennsylvania State University. My research interests span Software and Systems Security. I strive to ground my efforts in practical security problems with an eye towards developing effective solutions to address realistic threats caused by today’s emerging technologies.
I am always looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students who would like to carry on top-notch research on Software and Systems Security. Candidates are expected to have a solid background in compilers, operating systems, formal methods, and strong programming skills. Please contact me if you are interested.
