About me

I am a Ph.D. student at TU Darmstadt, advised by Prof. Dr. Michael Pradel. My current research interest is on applying programming language techniques to security problems. In particular, I am working on finding and preventing vulnerabilities specific to server-side JavaScript programs and libraries.
