Hi! I am a third-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. I work with Professor Mohit Tiwari in the SPARK Research Lab. My research interests lie in system and processor architecture security.

Previously I was an undergraduate research intern in the DASlab at Harvard SEAS, where I worked on workload-aware data partitioning supervised by Professor Stratos Idreos.

In 2016, I graduated with my bachelor degree from Chu Kochen Honors College, Zhejiang University in Computer Science.

You can find my cv here.

Research Interest

Computer Security spans across all layers of the computing stack. I am interested in bridging the gap between application-layer security requirements and low-level system primitives.
