About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the PRESTO Research Group at OSU, working with Prof. Atanas Rountev and Prof. Raef Bassily. Before that, I spent 6.5 wonderful years for my B.E. and M.E. at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications.

My research interests span programming languages, software engineering, security, and privacy. My current focus includes foundational program analysis techniques and their applications for mobile and wearable applications, and practical solutions ensuring statistical privacy for general software telemetry analysis. I advocate reproducible research and enjoy building usable tools. All artifacts that I have developed are open-source and available here. I am also interested in designing new program analyses and automated testing methods in the context of reliability and security of other ubiquitous computing and cyber-physical systems, such as IoT and autonomous cars.
