About Me

I am an assistant professor at John Hopcroft Center for Computer Science of Shanghai Jiao Tong University since September 2018. I obtained my Ph.D. and master's degrees in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Toronto, respectively in 2018 and 2015. 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 a 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.
