About Me

I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at University at Buffalo, The State University of New York. I am currently working in RMS Lab under the supervision of Prof. Steve Ko.

My research interests are mobile computing and applications. My current research focus is API virtualization that enables openness in the Android platform. API virtualization is a shim layer at the boundary between the application layer and the Android platform layer. API virtualization allows third-party developers to modify, and customize existing Android APIs and deploy them seamlessly.
For more information, please visit our project website: http://reptor.cse.buffalo.edu.

When I'm away from the keyboard, I can often be found running, trekking, or snowboarding.
