About

I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, advised by Professor Gang Wang. I am also a member of Security and Privacy Research at Illinois (SPR@I).

I received both my B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from University of California, Berkeley, in 2019 and 2020, respectively. I was very fortunate to have Professor Dawn Song as my advisor during my graduate years.

My research interests lie in security and machine learning.
