About me

I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UC Berkeley since 2010. My advisor is Professor Dawn Song. I earned my B.E. in computer science from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2010. I obtained Guo Moruo Scholarship, the highest honor for undergraduate students at USTC.

Research Interests

I am interested in Big Data Security and Privacy (BigSaP). BigSaP is an emerging interdisciplinary research area. It requires techniques from big data analytics (e.g., large-scale machine learning, natural language processing, and network science/complex networks) as well as deep understandings about security and privacy. The pipeline of Big Data includes data acquisition, data cleaning, and data-driven applications. My work aims to bring security and privacy to each part of the pipeline. In particular, I call them privacy-preserving data acquisition, malicious data cleaning, and data-driven security applications.
