About Me

I am a fourth year Ph.D. student at The University of Texas at Dallas. My faculty supervisor is Dr. Shiyi Wei.


Research Interests

My research concerns the safety of desktop and mobile applications. I am interested in leveraging the strengths and potential of static program analysis to 1) detect critical bugs automatically and 2) expose potential leaks of private data. As part of this, I am also interested in automatically diagnosing problem in these static analysis tools and in their configurations.
