My main research interest is interdisciplinary computer security. I enjoy employing successful ideas from
other areas (e.g., Psychology and Biology) to make our computer systems more secure. Currently I focus on
employing ideas borrowed from Biology and warfare to protect OS kernels in cooperation with a virtual machine
or hardware. I am also interested in understanding the nature of software vulnerabilities and how we can prevent
them from a Psychological perspective.
