About Me

Hi! My name is DongInn Kim. I am a Ph.D. student at the Computer Science Department of Indiana University-Bloomington under the guidance of Prof. L Jean Camp. I work for the IU CSI CTF (Catch The Flag) team and I am also working on the Open Source Cluster Application Resources (OSCAR) as a core developer. My research interests include software engineering, clustering computing, and systems security.

Research Interest

My current research focuses on the reverse engineering for the security of IoT devices and building an intelligent dynamic analysis tool on the top of existing static/dynamic analysis security tools.
