· · · · CV

I am Duc Bui, a PhD candidate in CSE Department at the University of Michigan. I am working with Professor Kang Shin and excellent people at Real-Time Computing Lab.

My research lies at the intersection of usable security/privacy and natural language processing/machine learning. I am building systems which automatically analyze app permissions and privacy policies to detect abuse of collection and sharing of personal data in Android apps. I previously worked on mobile systems and networks for 5 years. I developed novel quality-of-service-guaranteed energy-efficient technologies for the Chrome web browser and real-time streaming.
