Short Bio [Publications][Google Scholar][DBLP]

My general research interests span between software engineering and computer security, with the focus on making software and system more reliable and secure via program analysis, software testing, text analysis, and system monitoring.

My work in software testing received ICSE SRC Best Project Representing an Innovative Use of Microsoft Technology at ACM SRC Grand Final 2012. My work in mobile security was selected as one of the top ten finalists for CSAW Best Applied Security Paper Award 2015, and produced a static analysis tool that was deployed in TouchDevelop of Microsoft Research. I worked as a researcher in the Computer Security Department at NEC Laboratories America for two years, and the security intelligence solution built by our team won first place in the Town Life and Society Innovation Category at CEATEC Award.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from North Carolina State University, advised by Prof. Tao Xie and Prof. Laurie Williams. I was a visiting student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for 2013-2014.
