I’m currently a PhD student in PragSec Lab at Stony Brook University. I work under the supervision of Professor Nikiforakis, aiming uncover vulnerabilities and practices, that make the web insecure. More specifically, my research goal is to make web applications safer, by reducing their attack surface through software debloating. I incorporate static and dynamic analysis techniques to identify unused features in web applications and remove them. In my prior work, I have showed that this method of attack surface reduction is highly effective in removing exploitable vulnerabilities from web applications. I make parsers, code analyzers and symbolic execution engines. Orthogonally to my work on attack surface reduction, I study malicious bots on the internet devising ways to protect websites against them by differentiating their traffic from regular user traffic. I will be on the job market from the January of 2023.
