My research interests include Operating System and virtualization security, trustworthy computing, and building verifiably secure cloud computing infrastructures. My current research focuses on distributed system security including application integrity and information flow security. In particular, I have been examining how to ensure applications running on highly scalable virtualized infrastructures can be proven secure with respect to specific security and integrity criteria. In the past I have researched trusted computing topics including ways of using the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to report information flow policies and establish trust between machines on an Internet scale. During my undergraduate program, I explored various research topics such as Artificial Intelligence and Spatial Databases.
