I am a tenured Associate Professor of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University. I am also affiliated with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of OSU.


I am interested in the security of computer systems and networks in general. While I also work on many other projects, my current research focus is the security and application of trusted execution environments (TEE), which broadly involves research on hardware vulnerabilities, side channels, program analysis, formal verification, crypto protocol design and analysis, blockchain and decentralized computing, machine learning, etc.

In the past, I have attempted to categorize my research into the following research areas. While some of these research projects are still on-going, I do not update them frequently.
