Hi! I am a PhD student at School of Computing, National University of Singapore. I am working with Prof Prateek Saxena on system security. My work mostly focuses on the design and implementation of next-generation computer architectures that provide strong and provable security guarantees for applications while being efficient and scalable at the same time. Areas I am particularly interested in include trusted execution environments, architectural capability-based security, and microkernels.
