About Me

I have moved to University of South Florida to follow my advisor, Dr. Xinming (Simon) Ou in continuing my Ph.D. studies since August 2015. This pace is no longer actively maintained. Please visit my new page here

I am a Ph.D. candidate at Kansas State University in the Computing and Information Sciences Department. I'm privileged to be advised by Dr. Xinming (Simon) Ou and honored to be a member of the Argus Cybersecurity Research Group as well as Cyber Defense Club.


My primary research areas are operating systems and cyber security. Currently I'm focusing on Cyber-physical systems and Secure Real-time Operating Systems.
