I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science & Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
I am generally interested in all computer security and privacy related problems. Most recently, I have focused on web security and privacy, e.g., designing and implementing tools and systems that secure web applications and services and protect end users.
I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2017, and my B.Eng. in Computer Science from Tsinghua University in 2012.
Our department hosts multiple rounds of Ph.D. admission interviews in each academic year. The first admission interview is usually in May of the year preceding the year that you will start your Ph.D. You could find more information about the admission opportunities HERE. Note that we can invite only a limited number of applicants to our HKPFS Summer Workshop. You are encouraged to apply to the other two rounds of early admissions as well.
If you are interested in working with me on computer security and/or systems research, please submit your application through our official application website as early as possible.
Undergraduate Research Assistants
We have research positions available for undergraduate students at CUHK.
We may also have openings for (summer) research internship, depending on availability. We expect that the intern can stay with us for at least 2 months. If you are interested, please send your CV and transcript to me.
Note that it may take the Hong Kong Immigration Department 4 to 6 weeks to process a visa/entry permit application for training. Therefore, please submit your application early if you will need a visa/entry permit for entering Hong Kong for research training.
