Short Bio

I am an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Computer Science at San Diego State University [SDSU]. My research interests lie in distributed system security and performance optimization, with the current focus on the Blockchain. I received my Ph.D. from Syracuse University [SU] in May 2022, where I worked with Dr. Yuzhe (Richard) Tang.

Currently, my research group focuses on understanding and hardening the security of largely deployed Blockchains such as Ethereum and Bitcoin.

I am always looking for self-motivated students to work on system and network security. If you are interested, please send me an email with your CV and transcripts!
