About Me

I am a fourth year Ph.D. student at The University of Texas at Dallas. My faculty supervisor is Dr. Shiyi Wei.


Research Interests

My research focuses on security, specifically fuzz testing and static analysis. I am interested in improving software security by (1) benchmarking program analysis tools and (2) developing fuzz testing tools that are able to explore code paths overlooked by other tools


GitHub

My open-source projects are stored on GitHub at https://github.com/SlaterLatiao. Special thanks to Mr. Slater Latiao for allowing me to use his name as my GitHub username.
