I am a sixth-year Ph. D student in Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University, advised by Prof. Ruby B. Lee. I received my Bachelor's degree in physics and economics at Peking University in 2011.


I have a broad research interest in computer architecture and system security. Specifically I focus on cloud computing infrastructure security. I design novel cloud frameworks to enhance the security of virtual machines and applications [CloudCom2013][ISCA2015][IEEEMICRO2016]. I explore different attacks and defenses existing in public clouds [RAID2016][AsiaCCS2017].

I also work on hardware security verification and evaluation [HASP2012][HASP2013][ACSAC2014].
