I am always looking for motivated undergraduate and graduate students who would like to engage in security and privacy research. You can take a look at my research page or ALPS to get an idea of my past/current projects.

Research Opportunities for Current Students

Most of my research projects require good algorithmic and programming skills. If you are interested in joining my lab, email me to discuss your interests. Include your CV and unofficial transcripts.

Note that if you are going to take research credits with me in a semester (independent study, BS/MS project, or thesis), we need to discuss and agree on your research project in the preceding semester.
