I'm an EDIC Ph.D. student at EPFL. I received my bachelor and master degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology and University of Chinese Academy of Sciences respectively.

I am broadly interested in operating systems, software engineering and computer security at all layers (e.g., software,system and hardware security). Recently, I focus on vulnerability discovery, including fuzzing and static analysis.
