Research Assistant (RA) positions available for self-motivated PhD students. I am passionate about designing and implementing timing-predictable, efficient, and safe autonomous embedded systems, with autonomous driving as the currently focused application domain. Recent research focus of our research group is on attacking/detecting/mitigating vulerabilities in DNN-driven autonomous driving systems and performing system-level optimization in such systems.

I am interested in working with self-motivated students who strive for success through research. In the past, students in our group interned at top research labs (e.g., IBM T.J. Watson and Fujitsu US Research), and had excellent academic and industry job placements. If you are interested in my research and working with me, please include some samples of your work (e.g., major projects, open source contributions, etc.) when contacting me directly.

For current UTD students who are interested in working with me, please stop by my office so that we can discuss and see if there is a good match.




I received the "Young Outstanding Teacher" award from UT-Dallas.
