I am an Assistant Professor at Purdue University in the Computer Science Department.
My research interests cover the fields of software and system security. Specifically, my main research areas are: emerging security threats in mobile platforms, automatic vulnerability detection in mobile apps, program analysis, binary analysis, reverse engineering, binary hardening, binary patching, and security of embedded and IoT devices. In general, my research focuses on designing and developing novel automated approaches and tools to identify vulnerabilities in existing software, fix them, and prevent them.
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.
