I currently work at Lucid Motors as a Security Engineer, where I focus on identifying vulnerabilities in arm-based systems using static and dynamic analysis, crafting proof of concepts, and conducting threat analysis.

I graduated from Arizona State University in the summer of 2023 with a Master’s degree in Computer Security. During my time at ASU, I was involved with SEFCOM, primarily collaborating with Dr. Tiffany Bao, as well as Dr. Yan Shoshitaishvili, Dr. Ruoyu (Fish) Wang, and Dr. Adam Doupe.

My research at ASU focused on automated vulnerability analysis in application software, with a particular emphasis on fuzzing and dynamic patching.

Before graduating from ASU, I interned at SEFCOM under Dr. Tiffany Bao.

I also participated in CTF competitions with Shellphish, where I concentrated on challenges related to Web Security and Reverse Engineering. Prior to joining Shellphish, I was a core member of Team bi0s.
