I am an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Texas A&M University. Before joining Texas A&M, I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the College of Computing, Georgia Tech, in 2008. I am a recipient of 2010 NSF CAREER Award, 2013 AFOSR Young Investigator Award, Best Student Paper Award from 2010 IEEE Symposium on Security & Privacy (Oakland'10), Best Paper Award from 2015 International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS'15), and a Google Faculty Research Award. I'm currently directing the SUCCESS (Secure Communication and Computer Systems) Lab at TAMU.
