My research interest lies in program analysis, security, deep learning security, dependability and interpretability.
The following lists the main projects I currently have.
Deep learning model security, including defending against adversarial sample attacks and model hardening, from the interpretability perspective ([NDSS'19], [NIPS'18], [NDSS'18])
Deep learning model testing and debugging by analyzing model internals, addressing problems such as over-fitting, under-fitting, and sample biases from the program analysis prespective ([FSE'18], [FSE'17])
Data processing program (e.g., numerical programs) dependability ([CGO'19],[OOPSLA'15])
Probabilistic program analysis, especially analysis for native code without sources. These analyses feature using probabilistic graph models to deal with uncertainty ([ ICSE'18], [ FSE'18], [FSE'16])
