Sigmund Gorski is a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at North Carolina State University (NCSU). He is advised by Dr. William Enck and is a member of the Wolfpack Security and Privacy Research (WSPR) Lab. Before joining NCSU, he received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD), James A. Clark School of Engineering.
Sigmund's primary domain of expertise falls within the areas of security and privacy, with specific interest in the security and privacy of modern computing platforms (e.g. Android) and the access control of these complex systems. His research focuses on the development of tools that aid developers and security researchers in: 1) understanding the complex interactions of the different forms of access control in modern computing platforms and 2) applying this understanding to automate the identification of vulnerabilities in the access control enforcement of these platforms. He is particularly interested in applying both static and program analysis techniques to extract and draw insights into the correctness of access control policy.
Sigmund plans to graduate in December, 2019 and is currently on the job market. If you have any questions about his research or would like to collaborate, feel free to contact him.
