I am a first year Ph.D student in College of Information Sciences & Technology from The Pennsylvania State University. I am co-advised by Dr. Xinyu Xing and Dr. Peng Liu. I received my B.S in Computer Science & Technology from Nanjing University in 2017.

My research interests lie in software security and are driven by three premises:

  • Security risk is serious and getting more serious.
  • Defense techniques against attacks innovates slow.
  • Humans are stupid and will remain so.

In particular, I am interested in developing techniques that automatically discover, exploit, and patch vulnerabilities for complext softwares such as operating system kernel. My approach is based on program analysis.
