I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of California, Irvine.

My interests span a wide range of complex computational systems such as OS kernels, compilers, and deep neural networks. I am especially interested in understanding performance characteristics as well as failure modes of these systems. My past work includes self-supervised representation learning, automated compiler-level software analysis, hardware security research, and memory-corruption attacks.
