Research Interests

I am primarily interested in real-world systems security and privacy - how security systems miserably fail in reality, and how to design systems to survive against advanced attacks. Some topics of interest include: Android/iOS, IoT, cloud/CDN, CPS and hardware security; anti-surveillance tools; authentication; privacy; usable security; ransomware, phishing, and financial security.
