I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Pennsylvania working with Prof. Mayur Naik. Our current work focuses on debloating large software systems for increased performance and security. I recently defended my thesis “Language Support for Adaptive Energy-Aware Applications” under the supervision of my advisor Prof. Yu David Liu where I received an award for Excellence in Computer Science Research at Binghamton University.
Broadly speaking, I am interested in the intersection between programming languages and real-world systems. My work has focused on using programming languages to help programmers build energy efficient software. We have published several papers on this intersection between energy systems and programming languages. Moving forward, I aim to strengthen the support that programming languages and models can provide in energy-critical systems, e.g., UAV programming.
