My interests are primarily in software security, cryptography, and electronic privacy. More recently I have started exploring mobile devices and cloud security.
I work in the Security and Privacy group let by Helen Wang. I also work with Patrice Godefroid, Ella Bounimova, and Michael Levin on the Scalable Automated Guided Execution (SAGE) project. Before MSR, I spent several years at Berkeley, where I finished a PhD with David Wagner.
