I'm currently a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, supervised by Prof. Z. Morley Mao. My current research interests include Network and System Security.
Before coming to UMich, in 2016, I received my B.Eng. in Software Engineering from Tongji University in Shanghai, China. After that, I worked as a research assistant supervised by Dr. Daniel Xiapu Luo at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
My research generally focuses on network and system security. More specifically, my research interest includes vulnerability discovery and security enhancement, leveraging formal analysis (e.g., model checking), fuzzing, and hardware-assisted security features (e.g., TrustZone). Currently, I am actively working on the Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) protocol/system security and in-vehicle network security.
