About Me

I'm a first year graduate student in Computer Science and Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I have been working in NSEC Lab for two years. My advisor is Prof. Haojin Zhu. I earned my B.S. from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2015.

My current research interest broadly includes data privacy, social networks privacy, smartphone security, network security, and machine learning.

Eating and doing different things, of course.

I am a fan of sports. I like basketball, football, badminton, swimming and so on. I also good at running. I have been a memeber of Liuzhou High School's running team and on behalf of the school to participate in the competition.

I also like playing computer games, watching TV and movie, reading books in my spare time. Chatting with friends is a necessary. Passing exams with high scores is one of my hobbies, too :)

  • Attending academic conferences:
    1. INFOCOM 2016
    2. A3 Workshop 2016
    3. ICCC 2015
    from top to bottom.

  • Football game in my Grade one, High School.

  • When I saw someone else showing off his trophy, I thought I should have a trophy, too.


Liuzhou High School

Liuzhou High School, China
2008 — 2011

Liuzhou High School is one of the best high schools in Guangxi. I have enjoyed my happinest three years here. I grew up and learnt a lot. I met plenty of best friends. Thanks you, my alma mater!

Shanghai Jiao Tong University

SJTU, China
2011 — now

I was enrolled in Shanghai Jiaotong University in 2011 and chose Computer Science and Engineering as my major. As a junior CSer, my road is still long and tortuous , but I'll work hard :).
