Hello, I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Department of Computer Science at Purdue University. I am co-advised by Prof. Dongyan Xu, Prof. Antonio Bianchi, and Prof. Z. Berkay Celik. Before joining the Ph.D. program I was a researcher at Agency for Defense Development. I received my M.S. from POSTECH under the supervision of Prof. Jong Kim. My research interests are all aspects of software security and reliability.
