Some Current Research Projects
Below is a sampling of current research projects we are pursuing in my group. I am always open to exploring new ideas, so if you have something you are passionate about, and which you think I can advise you effectively on, then by all means get in touch!

Modern computer software commonly consists of groups of individual programs working together toward the same goal. This common purpose model is not reflected in the way the software actually executes today. Instead, each program runs in carefully guarded isolation, communicating via secure system calls. This project introduces a new concept, a “compound process” which better reflects the realities of modern software. A compound process may host several “guest” programs in a single trust domain, eliminating expensive and often redundant safeguards between components of a single software stack, to yield substantial performance benefits.
