I am a 5-th year CS Ph.D. candidate at UC Irvine working with Prof. Qi Alfred Chen.

My research interest is Cyber-Physical Systems security with a focus on autonomous driving and intelligent transportation systems security. Recently, I have been mainly working on the security of production-grade autonomous driving systems, including those providing different levels of driving autonomy (e.g., Level-2 and Level-4). Previously, I have also explored other security areas such as compiler-assisted countermeasures for fault and side-channel attacks and efficient isolation for Linux kernel subsystems.

Before joining UCI, I graduated with a M.S. and B.E. from North Carolina State Univerity, Raleigh and Hangzhou Dianzi University, China, respectively.
