About Me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Iowa State University since Fall 2015. I obtained a Ph.D in Computer Science from UC Berkeley in May 2015, under the supervision of Dawn Song. I earned my B.E. in Computer Science from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2010 with the highest honor called Guo Moruo Scholarship. I received an NSF CAREER Award in 2018.


I am interested in computer security and privacy with a recent focus on security and privacy analytics. Specifically, I leverage data science techniques, including machine learning, network science, natural language processing, and optimization, to study security and privacy; and I build secure and privacy-preserving data analytics systems. My projects include:
