Primary Research Area: 

  • Computer Engineering

Research Statement: 

My main research interest is interdisciplinary computer security. I enjoy employing successful ideas from 

other areas (e.g., Psychology and Biology) to make our computer systems more secure. Currently I focus on 

employing ideas borrowed from Biology and warfare to protect OS kernels in cooperation with a virtual machine 

or hardware. I am also interested in understanding the nature of software vulnerabilities and how we can prevent 

them from a Psychological perspective.
