Research Materials

I am an Associate Professor in the School of Cyber Science and Engineering, Sichuan Univeristy, China. I am broadly interested in all aspects of network and system security. My work follows a measurement and data driven approach to characterize and detect critical security issues in large-scale systems. My current research focuses on attack detection, underground economics, cyber threat intelligence, source code and supply chain security.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the Sichuan Univeristy, and I did a Joint PhD student at University of California, Santa Barbara, under the supervision of Prof. Giovanni Vigna.

Looking for bright students
I am looking for self-motivated Master/Undergraduate students, and (Visiting) research students who have strong interests in security research. If you are interested, feel free to send me an email.
