Yeganeh Safaei

PhD Student at Arizona State University

I am a security researcher and a PhD student under the supervision of Dr. Adam Doupé at ASU. I am a member of Laboratory of Secure Engineering for Future Computing (SEFCOM) directed by Dr. Gail-Joon Ahn and Dr. Doupé.


My research focuses on mobile security, specifically I analyze apps within the Android ecosystem to identify security vulnerabilities. To accomplish this, I perform static analysis on real world apps to gather statistics and find vulnerable apps.
