Assistantships

PhD positions available (to start Fall 2013 or later). For research on secure information flow in software: policies, static analysis, and runtime monitoring for Android and other platforms. Full funding is provided. (Supported by NSF and DHS.) The ideal candidates have background in programming language theory and implementation or formal methods. Details here.

For undergrad and MS students: Scholarships for Service.

Undergraduate summer research: Contact me early in Spring semester for projects, supported by NSF and the Stevens Scholars program. And look for other opportunities and ideas.

Research

My focus is on formal methods and software security, including: ad hoc network application security; JavaScript and web security; fine-grained confidentiality/integrity policies; program analysis, verification, and transformation; correctness by construction; and methodology for formal specification of system components. For details see publications and tools.

Affiliated with: CASSIA, the Center for the Advancement of Secure Systems and Information Assurance.

Current and past PhD students: Mohammad Nikouei; Andrey Chudnov; Chunyu Tang (finished Fall 2013); Stan Rosenberg (finished Summer 2011); Qi Sun (finished Fall 2007).

I'm working with Anindya Banerjee (IMDEA Software), Gary Leavens (U. Central FL.), and others on Flexible and Practical Information Flow Assurance for Mobile Apps (NSF award 1228930) --see the FlowSpecs project.

With support from DHS I'm working on Tunable Information Flow with researchers at HRL Laboratories.

I'm working with Gary Leavens and others on the Java Modeling Language (JML), and with Leila Silva (UFS Brazil) and Augusto Sampaio (UFPE Brazil) on refactoring (NSF awards CNS-0708330 and CCF-0915611).

With support from Microsoft Research I worked with Andy Gordon and François Dupressoir on Verifying Cryptographic Code in C. And collaborated on the Spec#/Boogie software specification/verification project.

With support from NSF I worked with Anindya Banerjee on Access Control and Downgrading in Information Flow Assurance, collaborating with Tamara Rezk and Gilles Barthe (INRIA), Marco Pistoia (IBM), Qi Sun and Stan Rosenberg. See our Secure Information Flow Inferencer and Verifier for Region Logic.

With support from Telcordia and the U.S. Government I'm working with Susanne Wetzel and Chunyu Tang on high assurance for security in wireless networking
