About Me


I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at UT Arlington. I received my PhD from The Pennsylvania State University. My research interests span Software and Systems Security. I am endeavoring to develop novel security analysis techniques to help people find software vulnerabilities and defeat malicious programs. My students and me are leading UTA Cyber Security Club. My research projects are founded by NSF, Cisco Research Gifts, and UT System STARs Program.

I am always looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students who would like to carry on top-notch research on Software and Systems Security. Candidates are expected to have a solid background in compilers, operating systems, formal methods, and strong programming skills. Please contact me if you are interested.
