I am a PhD student in the Language-Based Security group at Chalmers University of Technology,
where I started in August 2015.
My supervisor is Andrei Sabelfeld
and my CO-supervisor is Daniel Hedin.
Before joining Chalmers as a PhD I did my Bachelor and Master education in
Computer Science at Gothenburg University.
My research interest is within web security and programming languages.
More precisely, how one can combine programming language features in
order to have safe web applications.
Working with JSFlow, the question is how one can track the information
private data is being released on a public channel.
I also enjoy functional programming, compilers and type systems.
