I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Computer and Information Science, at the University of Pennsylvania. My primary research focus is building trustworthy information protection systems. Specifically, I investigate the unanticipated interactions between operating systems, programming languages, and computer architecture. I recently completed my dissertation in the Computer Science Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a member of Professor Vikram Adve's research group.
I'm excited about research on trustworthy system design and implementation, secure execution environments, secure and private web browsing, privacy preserving communication systems, and deterministic record and replay systems. I am passionate about learning and the transfer of knowledge. My current research focuses on securing commodity operating systems from external attacks and applying novel operating system decomposition to enforce least-privilege protections within the operating system itself.
I recently setup PGP keys. The public key can be found on pgp.mit.edu key server.
