Hi! I am faculty member in the Computer Science Department at National University of Singapore.

My research is on computer security and privacy. We are interested in principled and algorithmic approaches to practical security problems.

Current Research Thrusts - ML Security, Decentralized Systems Security, Security Processors, and Automatic Program Translation.

Please see our recent publications.

We are fortunate to have talented researchers in the KISP Lab. The name stands for 'Keep It Secure and Private'.

Thanks to CISCO Research, Google, Intel, Symantec, sponsors of the Crystal Center, MoE-Singapore, DSO Labs, and NRF-Singapore for their generous and continued support to our research!

Several spinoffs came out of our research, notably Zilliqa and Kyber Network.
I have fond memories of the CS department at UC Berkeley, where I got my PhD in 2012.
