About Me

I am a Professor with the Department of Computer Science & Technology and the National Key Lab for Novel Software Technology at Nanjing University. Prior to joining NJU, I were fortunate to work with many wonderful people in NEC Labs Princeton, Microsoft Research Asia, and Samsung Research America. I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the College of William and Mary and received the Distinguished Dissertation Award.


My research interests span a broad range of topics in the space of security and systems. Currently I am focusing on bigdata-driven security analytics, mobile systems & applications, system & network security, user privacy, and cloud computing.


Looking for

Highly-motivated students (博士、硕士、本科生) who have strong backgrounds or interests in security & systems research
Visiting scholars(访问学者)in similar research fields
