About me

I am an assistant professor in the School of Information Science and Technology at the ShanghaiTech University. I received my Ph.D. from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and B.S. in Computer Science from the Tsinghua University.

Recently, I am interested in hardware security. Our group hacks/secures computing and networking systems based on the understanding of underlying hardware components. We also work on high-performance wireless networks, primarily to achieve deterministic and low-latency end-to-end wireless connections.
