Overview

I am currently a Research Fellow in Department of Compute Science at City University of Hong Kong. I earned my PhD degree from City University of Hong Kong under the direction of the incomparable Cong Wang in August 2016, and I received my MS degree and BS degree from Illinois Institute of Technology and Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications both in Electrical Engineering. Before that, I was graduated from the High School Affiliated to Nanjing Normal University. From 2011 to 2013, I worked at Stromasys S.A. as Senior Software Engineer, developing virtual SPARC and ALPHA servers on the x86 platform.


My research interests include cloud computing security, network security, mobile security, and hardware security, with the current focus on search over encrypted data, and network function virtualization security.


I will join the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University as a Lecturer (~Assistant Professor).
