Short Bio


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Old Dominion University (ODU), and affiliated with ODU's Center for Cybersecurity Education and Research.

Prior to joining ODU in Fall 2019, I worked as a Postdoc Researcher in the Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) at University of California San Diego, working with Dr. Alberto Dainotti and Dr. Amogh Dhamdhere. I obtained my Ph.D. from Department of Computer Science at the College of William and Mary, advised by Dr. Haining Wang.

[2019/06] Starting Fall 2019, I will be a tenure-track assistant professor in Department of Computer Science at Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA. I am looking for Ph.D. students to join my group at ODU and work on research in Networking and Security.

[2018/02] I am joining CAIDA at UC San Diego as a Postdoctoral Researcher.

[2017/11] I defended my Ph.D. in College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA.

[2017/09] I am working as a Research Intern in Computer Security Department at NEC Laboratories America in Princeton, New Jersey.


Research


My research interest lies in Networking and Security, with the specific focus on applying measurement, empirical study, and data-driven approach to study Internet Infrastructure (Topology, Routing, DNS, CDN, etc.), Security and Privacy of Internet and Networking Systems, Web Security and Privacy, and Cybercrime.
