Biography

  • I am currently an Associate Professor in the school of Cyber Science and Engineering of Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), where I lead the ARTS3 research group (in short for Advanced Research for Trustworthy and Secure Software Systems). I obtained my PhD degree from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). During my PhD studies, I was honored and fortunate to be supervised by Prof. Shing-Chi CHEUNG in the CASTLE group. I also had an unforgettable visiting experience at UC, Davis under the supervision of Prof. Zhendong Su. My research interests mainly focus on Software Security (in particular Fuzzing and Analysis), Software Supply Chain Security and Big Code Analysis.
