I am a Ph.D. student in Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University. I'm very fortunate to work with my advisors Professor Zhiqiang Lin and Professor Yinqian Zhang at Computer Security Laboratory (SecLab) . Prior to joining OSU, I received my M.E. degree from Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences and from University of Science and Technology of China.
