I am a 2nd year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at the University of Chicago and my advisor is Prof. Nick Feamster. And I received my Bachelor of Engineering degree from Yingcai Honors College at UESTC. 
Before coming to UChicago, I was the CEO of a start-up Dominity Security Co., Ltd. I also had my internship in Virginia Tech, Qihoo 360, MSRA(short-term visit), KnowWhy, Tsinghua NISL and Cyberpeace.
My research interests lie in the intersection between network systems, security & privacy and HCI. Typical scenarios I’ve explored include IoT and CPS. My dream and what I always endeavor is to become a researcher, hacker, poet and practical idealist.
