Assistant Professor |College of Engineering, Department of Computer Science and Engineering   Research Group

I am an assistant professor at the CSE Department of SUSTech. My research interests include software testing and analysis, cyber-physical systems, mobile computing, and cybersecurity. I obtained my B.Sc. degree in Computer Science with honor from Nanjing University in 2010, and my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from HKUST in 2015. Prior to joining SUSTech, I worked at the CASTLE Lab and Cybersecurity Lab of HKUST as a postdoc, under the supervision of Prof. Shing-Chi Cheung and Prof. Charles Zhang.
