About Me

I am a final-year Ph.D. candidate at Carnegie Mellon Unviersity (affiliated with ECE and Cylab), advised by Prof. Vyas Sekar. I also work closely with Prof. Giulia Fanti.

Prior to joining CMU, I receive a dual bachelor’s degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (ECE) and the University of Michigan (CSE) where I was advised by Prof. Z. Morley Mao and Prof. Qi Alfred Chen.

I am currently looking for full-time positions in industry (SDE, MLE, Research Scientists)! Feel free to email me.

Research Interests

My research interests include the application of Machine Learning (especially Deep Generative Models) to networking, security, and systems.

I am a big fan of Classical Music (Chopin, Rachmaninoff, etc.) and I have been playing the piano since I was six. I also love photography and I am a pro swimmer (National Athelete Level Three).
