My research interests are in operating systems, programming languages, and distributed systems, with a particular focus on improving software reliability and security. I have been working on building effective tools to detect new harmful security bugs in widely used software (such as "useradd" in Linux) as well as building practical systems that can strengthen fault-tolerance of real-world applications. I admit 1 to 2 new PhD students every year. We constantly collaborate with faculty and students in CMU and Columbia University, and we publish in good systems conferences such as SOSP, OSDI, ASPLOS, and PLDI. You can contact me via email if you are a good systems hacker.
Research topics/projects
Operating systems, reliable and secure multi-threading, distributed systems, fault tolerance
