Pascal Gadient

Research Assistant

After working on Android application analysis during the SCG seminar and master’s thesis, I now continue to contribute within this field during my PhD research.

My interest includes large Android app collections that are mined for security issues. These issues are evaluated based on different feature sets and thus contain a valuable source for later software assessments.

Supervisors: Dr. Mohammad Ghafari, Prof. Dr. Oscar Nierstrasz
