Research Interests:

My research focuses on enhancing the security and performance of computer systems in practical situations. My work targets problems that impact millions of users or mitigates issues with emerging technologies. I build systems and, whenever appropriate, use extensive live deployments to validate their practicality in real settings. Conference and journal publications are an important aspect of impact. But in many cases much more can be done. I believe one should validate and demonstrate the applicability of the research to real world problems. This means that much of my work spans multiple fields, primarily systems and security.

I am interested in mentoring a bright and hard working post doc. My work tends to be quite broad, so the area of work can vary according to the post doc’s interests.
