I am a senior undergraduate student (graduated on Dec 19, 2020) studying computational statistics and data sciences at the Pennsylvania State University. I’m currently advised by Dr. Ting Wang for conducting researches in security and privacy of machine/deep learning based systems. Previously, I worked as a bioinformatics programmer at the Mahony Lab where I had pleasure working with a group of genius researchers from May till Dec, 2020.

My research focus on deep learning security & privacy, more specifically the backdoor attack and defense in deep learning based systems. My other interests are social computing, differential privacy as well as its applications.
