About me

I have been a PhD student in this group since 2015. My main research interests are binary reverse-engineering, compilers and memory safety. I have done work on lifting binaries to LLVM, and on (source-level) program instrumentation in the compiler to do bounds checking. I also wrote an instrumentation framework for program instrumentation and benchmarking.
