I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the College of William and Mary, being advised by Prof. Adwait Nadkarni. My research interests lie in analyzing security policies employed in modern operating systems as well as designing security frameworks that enforces such policies. I work at the Secure Platforms Lab (SPL) at William & Mary, where currently, I am involved in identifying and analyzing security problems in smart home platforms and devices, especially concerning home automation.
