Welcome! I am a first-year Computer Science Ph.D. student at Indiana University Bloomington, advised by Prof. Luyi Xing. Previously, I received my B.Eng. and M.Eng. degree(advised by Prof. Guojun Peng ) from Wuhan University in 2020 and 2023, respectively.
In general, my research area is system and software security. I mainly focus on vulnerability discovery and exploitation, with a broad interest in machine learning security and program analysis techniques. I have done a lot of hackings on IoT devices, including routers, smart speakers, etc.
Recently, I am learning programming languages and deep learning :)
