I am an assistant professor of cybersecurity in the department of computer science at the University of Georgia, and a member of the UGA Institute for Cybersecurity and Privacy. Before joining UGA, I was a post-doctoral researcher at Penn State. My research interests cover a wide range of systems security, including mobile security and IoT systems security. I am especially interested in leveraging COTS hardware components/features to design and build systems that are more reliable and secure than solutions based on software alone.
A current project that I am actively involved in is focused on enhancing the security of microcontroller firmware. This project is funded by the NSF CAREER Award.
Opening: I am looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students. Please send me your CV if interested. Candidates are expected to have a solid background in system programming and operating systems.
