I am a security researcher, working primarily in the areas of systems security and user privacy.
My research seeks to create practical solutions with strong security guarantees for user data and resources on commodity operating platforms (e.g., Mac OS X, Android, Windows). My work achieves these guarantees through novel policy and enforcement primitives that take advantage of the architectures and unique abstractions of the operating platforms. Previously, I have conducted research on a diverse array of security topics including OS security extensibility, privacy audits, security isolation, and application security.
I am joining the Department of Computer Science at The College of William and Mary in Fall 2017! If you are a highly motivated student interested in building and evaluating secure operating systems, please send me an email with your CV.
