I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at William & Mary.

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.

Looking for students!:Please send me an email if you are a highly motivated student interested in security research, or if you want to know more about my research or the general domain of security and privacy.
