About me

I am a PhD student at University of California, Riverside, advised by Prof. Heng Yin. Prior to UCR, I obtained a B.E. degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2017. Here is my CV.


My research interests lie in computer security. In particular, I am interested in using machine learning techniques to solve problems in binary analysis, including but not limited to binary diffing, malware detection, and vulnerability search.
