I am an Assistant Professor in the Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clemson University. Before joining Clemson, I was an Assistant Professor in the College of Computing at Michigan Technological University. I received my Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Florida (2020), my M.E. in computer engineering from Peking University (2015), and my B.S. in Mathematics from Fudan University (2012). 

My research spans the fields of machine learning, security & privacy, and edge computing. I was the recipient of the ORAU Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award in 2022 and the Michigan Tech ICC Achievement Award in 2022. I have been serving as an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems (TNNLS) since 2022.
