About Me

I am going to join John Hopcroft Center for Computer Science of Shanghai Jiao Tong University in September 2018, as an assistant professor. I obtain my Ph.D. and Master's degrees both in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Toronto. My advisor is Prof. Baochun Li. I received the B.S. degree from the Department of Electronic Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2012.

My general research interests cover the intersected areas of security, privacy, machine learning, and mobile computing. Topics include adversarial learning, privacy analysis in data mining, mobile systems and applications, mobile cloud computing. Particularly, I am interested in identifying fundamental security and privacy threats in machine learning systems, and designing practical countermeasures. I am also interested in applying machine learning algorithms to innovative mobile applications.

Prospective Students

I am always looking for self-motivated students who are interested in pursuing Master's or Ph.D. degrees in the broad areas of machine learning, security, privacy, and mobile computing. Please send me an email if you are interested.
