♞ About ME

Biography

I am a tenure-track assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Drexel University. Before joining Drexel, I spent three years as a postdoc researcher at The Ohio State University (OSU) (2020 - 2023), working with Prof. Zhiqiang Lin. Before coming to OSU, I graduated from Jinan University (2016 - 2020),  under the supervision of Jian Weng and Weiqi Luo.    Also, I ever visited/worked at  University of Central Florida (UCF) / University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML) (2018 -2020),  under the supervision of  Xinwen Fu.  My research focuses on system security, especially IoT security.
