Third year PhD Student at SecLab, University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). I am co-advised by Prof. Christopher Kruegel and Prof. Giovanni Vigna. I am generally interested in system security, vulnerability detection, program analysis and every thing related to the Linux Kernel. I am currently working on various problems related to Trusted Execution Environments (TEE), Static program analysis and Fuzzing.
