I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University. I work with Prof. Xiangyu Zhang and Prof. Dongyan Xu.

My research aims to solve system security problems via program analysis techniques

More specifically, I have developed fundamental primitives for the investigation of advanced cyber-attacks and the analysis and prevention of ever-evolving malicious programs and payloads across multiple platforms.
