I am a fifth(final) year Ph.D. student in Computer Science and expect to graduate in Dec 2022. I got my masters degree from South Dakota State University in 2017, where I studied both Civil Engineering and Computer Science masters. During my masters, I had worked on transportation data and mobile sensors data. Before that, I was a Logistics Engineer in Shanghai. I had worked on a number of projects on mobile sensor systems for Intelligent Transportation Systems.
During my PhD study, I had worked in the Wolfpack Interactive, Sensing, and Networking Lab advised by Dr. Muhammad Shahzad. I am currently a member of Wolfpack Security and Privacy Research Lab under guidance from Dr. Anupam Das. My research interests lie in the areas of sensor sensing, Internet of Things, security and privacy, with a special focus on the security and privacy challenges in mobile and IoT devices. I have been working on several mobile applications by applying machine learning on mobile sensors and other ubiquitous sensors such as accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer, WiFi, and microphones. Currently, I study and explore the security and privacy issues of voice assistants.
