I am researching computer security; I have presented some of my work on microarchitectural security, side-channel cryptanalysis, and hardwear-based trusted computing such as TPM and SGX in academic conferences (Usenix Security, ACM CCS, IEEE S&P, IACR CHES, ...) and industry hackercons (BlackHat USA, ToorCon, hardwear.io, RSA, ...). Starting in 2021, I will join UCSD CSE as a postdoctoral scholar under the mentorship of Nadia Heninger and Deian Stefan.
I received my PhD in ECE and MSc in CS from WPI under the supervision of Berk Sunar and Thomas Eisenbarth. During my graduate studies, I also had the privilege to temporarly (as paid intern) work with Cisco Talos and Qualcomm product security initiatve (QPSI). You can find a list of my talks here, the recording for some of them here, and my publications here or at my Google scholar profile.
Before graduate school, I worked several freelance/consultancy gigs as a software engineer, web developer, and computer security professional. I also wrote some technical blogs here on software security, particularly data-only exploitation and antivirus software vulnerabilities.
