Bio: I am currently a tenure-track faculty at CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security. Prior to that, I obtained my Ph.D. degree in the department of computer science at University of Virginia advised by Prof. David Evans in 2022. I received my M.S. degree from Department of Statistics at University of Virginia and my B.S. degree in Mathematics at Tsinghua University in 2017 and 2015, respectively. I am also a member of the European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems.

Research Interests: My research covers various topics in machine learning and security, including trustworthy machine learning, statistical machine learning, convex/non-convex optimization and deep learning. Recently, I focus on understanding the misbehavior of machine learning models against different adversaries and designing robust systems for various machine learning applications.

Open Positions: I am looking for self-motivated students who are interested in trustworthy machine learning, including PhD students, research assistants, intern and visiting students. Check Open Positions for more details.
