Associate Professor

Computer Science and Engineering


Justin's research philosophy focuses on improving real-world systems, often by addressing issues that arise in practical deployments.

His dissertation work was on Stork, the first package manager designed for environments that use operating system virtualization, such as cloud computing. Improvements in Stork, particularly relating to security, have been widely adopted and are used on the majority of Linux systems.  His research has also been adopted into production use in a variety of other widely used software including VMware, Python, git, and Docker.  More information is available at
