I am a second-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University, advised by Professor Xiangyu Zhang. My research interests focus on security problems in machine learning.

Before joining Purdue, I spent a wonderful year as a visiting graduate student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, advised by Professor Tao Xie and Professor Tianyin Xu. I received an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Dallas, advised by Professor Wei Yang. I was a full-time research assistant advised by Professor Wei Chen at the State Key Laboratory of CAD&CG for 1.5 years, at Zhejiang University before starting grad school.
