  • 1 Patent Granted


Systems/Application Development:

  • Developed various automation systems for malware classification using machine learning and dynamic and static analysis techniques
  • Developed Linux-based system for run-time program authentication, relying on static analyzers and reverse engineering techniques to characterize control flow for validation.  The run-time systems relied on the Intel BTS and LBR mechanisms for run-time control flow authentication.
  • Developed energy-management and energy-aware load balancing techniques for Linux servers.  Some of these techniques made use of the MSR registers (both hard and soft) for monitoring and controlling the energy consumption in a server.
  • Developed GUI-based tool components for designing real-time systems, targeting ARINC-653 standard.


Microarchitecture development/simulator skills:

  • Modified Cache, cache hierarchy, processing pipeline, decoder and prefetching components  of the PTLsim( and Marss86 ( fullsystemsimulators to design and evaluate hardware support for run-time authentication including cache line validation and control flow validation.
  • Incorporated the use of a signature cache in these simulators to speed up authentication.
