About me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Minnesota. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Georgia Institute of Technology. My research interests lie primarily in the area of software engineering, with emphasis on techniques for improving software quality. The central theme of my research is the development of techniques for software testing and maintenance. I am also interested in defining techniques for investigating software attacks and securing software.
