About me

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.

My current research involves information-flow control in JavaScript. Working with JSFlow, the question is how one can track the information flow in a web application's JavaScript code in a browser to ensure no private data is being released on a public channel.

I also enjoy functional programming, compilers and type systems.
