Room 109, HSH Eng. Bldg.

I founded and lead the CUHK Computer Security Lab.

I am generally interested in all problems related to computer security and privacy, including the ones intersecting with other areas in computer science and other disciplines. Most recently, I have been focusing on protecting the applications/services and the end users on the Internet.

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.

Well, I have to admit that apparently I'm not qualified as a professor in HK. Some help is really needed. Would someone please teach me how to write a good proposal? It's for sure much more challenging than publishing at the top computer systems conferences.


If you are interested in working with me on research in computer security or computer systems (e.g., programming languages, software engineering, operating systems, computer networks, etc.), please find the information about our vacancy HERE.
