Research Focus

My research focuses on open-source software supply chain security and developer trust at the intersection of software engineering and security. I study the ecosystem and dependency graph to identify how an attacker can break into a supply chain. I'm particularly interested in using past security incidents to assist software developers with their security tasks. Moreover, I apply empirical data and machine learning approaches to provide developers with actionable security insights.

My current research is focused on identifying security practices and gaps in different open source ecosystems and aims to abstract from the GitHub repository level and bring security check metrics to the ecosystem level for baseline measurement.
