About Me

I am a second year Ph.D. student at Computer Science Department in University of Wisconsin-Madison, advised by Professor Suman Banerjee. My research interest lies in mobile computing, IoT security and robust machine learning.

I was advised by Professor Xinyu Zhang (now at UCSD) in my first year, and worked on mobile computing systems. I received the B.S degree from Tsinghua University in 2016, where I worked on D2D Communications with Professor Yong Li
