I am a senior researcher in the Robust and Secure
Systems group at NEC Research Labs,
Princeton, NJ since Aug. 2010. I received my PhD degree in Dec. 2009 from Northwestern
University. Before joining Northwestern
University, I completed my B.S. in the Department of Physics and my M.S. in
the Department of Computer Science & Technology both at the Tsinghua University
I have broad interests in security, networking and system related research. My recent research covers network security, smartphone
security, web security, cloud security, social network security, network measurement and
distributed system diagnosis.
