I am an upcoming Tenure-track Assistant Professor in the CS department of Utah State University. I earned my Ph.D. in CS from WSU under the supervision of Prof. Haipeng Cai. Before that, I received my B.S. in CS from HUST in China [More]. My current research interests include Software Security, Software Engineering, and Network Security and Privacy. Particularly, I aimed to develop practical techniques to ensure the security of real-world software systems.

I am actively looking for self-motivated PhD students to join my research group starting from Spring 2025. If you are interested, please email me with your CV and Transcripts. (USU is a Carnegie Research I (R1) university).
