I am an Assistant Professor at Purdue University in the Computer Science Department.
My research interest lies in the area of Computer Security. My primary focus is in the field of security of mobile devices. In particular, I am interested in identifying novel security issues in these devices and applying both static and dynamic analysis techniques to detect vulnerable and malicious mobile apps automatically. I am also interested in developing new methods to analyze compiled binary code. More recently, I started exploring the security issues posed by IoT devices and their interaction with mobile applications. As a core member of the Shellphish and OOO teams, I played and organized many security competitions (CTFs), and I won the third place at the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge.
I am looking for interns, PhD students, and Postdocs working in the areas of Mobile Authentication, IoT, Trustzone, and Binary Analysis.
Please contact me if you are interested.
