I’m an associate professor in the College of Computing and Data Science at the Nanyang Technological University. I study the security, reliability, and sustainability of modern software systems. My research interests now focus on two areas: (1) sustainability of evolving software systems and (2) security and reliability of decentralized applications running on top of blockchains. See my publication list for details.

I’m always looking for self-motivated students to work with.
