I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Computer and Information Sciences Department at Fordham University. I obtained my Ph.D. degree from The Ohio State University in August 2021. I was very fortunate to work with my advisors Professor Zhiqiang Lin and Professor Yinqian Zhang at Computer Security Laboratory (SecLab) . I received my M.E. degree from Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences and from University of Science and Technology of China. I am co-director of Program Analysis and SecuriTy Assurance (PASTA) Lab at Fordham, with Professor Hailong Zhang.
