Research Interests

I have a broad interest in system security. My research focuses on the security of artificial intelligent, high-performance and scalable computing systems, e.g., edge/cloud computing, machine/deep learning systems and services, computer architecture, etc. I am interested in designing attack techniques to identify system vulnerabilities, defense solutions to enhance system security without compromising performance and usability, and methodologies of evaluating, quantifying and verifying system security threats and resistance.
