I am currently an Assistant Professor of Computer Science, and Director of Intelligent Systems Security Lab in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Dayton. My research leverages programming language and compiler techniques to enforce security policies to defend against cyber attacks in the areas of JavaScript/Web applications, mobile systems, vehicle systems, and Internet of Things frameworks.

I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Chalmers University, Sweden in 2011. I received my Master's degree from University of Ulsan, South Korea in 2006, and Bachelor's degree from HCMUT, Vietnam in 2001.





My research mainly focuses on software security, with use of ideas from programming languages, reference monitors, and compilers to defeat potential malicious behaviors from untrusted software. Some highlights of my publications:
