My primary research interests are in the areas of cloud computing and network security, with current focus on securing the data and computation outsourced into the cloud. I obtained my Bachelor and Master degree from Wuhan University, and PhD degree from Illinois Institute of Technology. I was a member of UbiSeC Lab at IIT from 2008 to 2012, and worked at Palo Alto Research Center in the summer of 2011.

I am looking for self-motivated students to work with me on the exciting area of cloud computing and security. Please contact me if you are interested. You can find more details of my current research here.
