Welcome! I am a Security Research Engineer in the Samsung KNOX security team at Samsung Research America. My broad interests are in computer systems and security. I obtained a PhD in Computer Science and Engineering at Penn State. My PhD dissertation looked at programs' interaction with the system they are deployed in, and how mismatches between program expectations of a system and the reality in the system can affect security. My PhD advisor was Dr. Trent Jaeger. I also have worked on infrastructures for providing transparent verification of the cloud, ARM TrustZone-based kernel runtime monitoring, and analyzing security policies at multiple layers for mediation and consistency properties. For more details, please see summaries below and my publications page.
