Scholarship Description:

I am an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Southern California. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Purdue University in 2018.

My research interests are in software engineering, software security, and computer systems. My work has been published in top-tier software engineering (ICSE, FSE, ASE, and ISSTA), security (S&P and NDSS), web (WWW), and measurement (IMC) venues.

In recognition of my research contributions, I received a UB Exceptional Scholar – Young Investigator Award in 2022, an NSF CAREER Award in 2021, a Facebook Testing and Verification Research Award in 2019, a Mozilla Research Award in 2019, and a Maurice H. Halstead Memorial Research Award in 2018.

Some of our ongoing projects include static/dynamic bug detection, program analysis for WebAssembly, attack investigation and detection, compiler testing, and performance profiling.
