Hi, Welcome! I am an assistant professor at Illinois Institute of Technology. I had my postdoctoral training at Cornell University and University of Utah, working with Prof. Elaine Shi & Prof. Mu Zhang. Before that, I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from UC Riverside in 2019, advised by Prof. Heng Yin. My research interests mainly lie in different aspects of Computer Security, including mobile security, IoT security, software testing, blockchain security and AI security. I enjoy solving emerging security problems by leveraging program analysis techniques and deep learning.
I am looking for motivated students to join my research group. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in working together on exciting projects in Computer Security.
