Ph.D Student in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
I am a fourth-year doctoral student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Maryland, College Park. I am supervised by Prof. Michelle Mazurek.
My research is about usable security and privacy, which combines cyberseucrity, privacy and human-computer interaction. I am interested in understanding users' security or privacy perceptions and behaviors, and designing or improving systems to be secure as well as usable.
I received my M.S. degree in ECE at UMD in May 2015. Before attending UMD, I obtained my B.S. degree in ECE at Beihang University (BUAA), Beijing, China in June 2012. My undergraduate research focused on iterative detection and decoding in MIMO systems.
I am enthusiastic about sports, especially soccer, swimming and hiking. I am a fan of FC Bayern München. I also learn German by myself.
