I'm a PhD student at CS department of Rice University advised by Prof. Ang Chen (starting from 2018 fall). I got my BS and MS degrees from Beihang University in 2014 and 2017, respectively. Before joining Rice, I worked as a kernel developer in VMware Inc. from 2017.1 to 2018.6.

My current research focus is networked system security, especially the security implications of programmable data planes.


[Jun 2019] Our preliminary work paper "Automated Attack Discovery in Data Plane Systems" was accepted in CSET'19!


On Life

I'm married to Siyu Xie in July, 2018.

I do a lot of sports - my favoriate is full-court (5 vs. 5) basketball games. I like shooting threes in transitions. My favoriate NBA player is Stephen Curry. I also like our local team Houston Rockets but I'm not a huge fan of it...
