About Me

image-1I am currently working as a Research Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Computer Science and the Information Trust Institute at at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC).

My research interests are primarily in the Computer Systems area. Much of my research aims to improve the resiliency of cyber-physical systems, real-time and embedded systems as well as the Internet-of-Things domains. To improve resiliency, my research group has worked on novel security mechanisms for these domains as well as robust networking and platform architectures. Read more about me.
