I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Texas at Dallas. I teach and do research on software engineering and security. My current primary projects relate to mobile security and adversarial machine learning. My past research experience spans the spectrum from automated testing (ORBIT, WCTester), through natural language processing (WHYPER, Pluto, CLAP, SemRegex), to malware detection (AppContext, EnMobile).
I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2018, advised by Prof. Carl A. Gunter and Prof. Tao Xie, an M.S. in Computer Science from North Carolina State University in 2013, advised by Prof. Tao Xie, and a B.E. in Software Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2011, advised by Prof. Jianjun Zhao. I was a visiting researcher in University of California, Berkeley in 2017, invited by Prof. Dawn Song.
