About Me

I am now a research professor in the Department of Computer Science & Technology, University of Science and Technology of China(USTC). Prior to that, I received my B.E and M.S from Wuhan University in 2005 and 2007,Ph.D. from Singapore National University (NUS)in February 2013, Research Scientist from Temasek Lab@NUS in Singapore National University from November 2013 to November 2014, and Singapore National University from 2015 to July 2017. Temasek Lab@NTU, a research scientist at Nanyang Polytechnic University, is engaged in Singapore's national defense project. Since then, I worked as a Level 2 data scientist in the anti-spam core project of Exchange Mail System in the Internet Engineering Institute of Microsoft Asia Pacific R&D Group.

I am recruiting PhD, Master and Undergraduate students. If interested, please feel free to drop me an email.
现招收博士、硕士以及中国科学技术大学本科生,对AI系统分析、大数据系统方向、区块链智能合约、软件系统安全感兴趣并且具有良好的数理基础,编程能力, 对前沿的科学与技术保持好奇与探索欲望的同学,欢迎随时联系我。本实验室科研经费充足,科研设备齐全,助研补贴高,同时优秀的同学可以送到海外名校实验室交流学习,毕业后可以推荐到海外名校(比如新加坡国立大学、南洋理工大学等)读博, 也有得到阿里等大公司内推的机会。

    Research Interests

My research interests Software engineering and Cyber Security. I am recently focusing on building systems that combines program analysis, data analysis and verification to accomplish the Cyber Security tasks,e.g.,vulnerability detection,malware detection and so on. (我最近专注于构建结合程序分析、数据分析和验证的系统,以完成网络安全任务,例如漏洞检测、恶意软件检测等。)
