I'm a second year PhD student at Computer Science Department of Northwestern University. My interest lies in Cryptography with a focus on Secure Multi-Party Computation and Zero-Knowledge Proofs.
My advisor is Xiao Wang.
I received my Bechelor degree from Xidian University in 2019.
2018 - Intern of Gemini Lab, Alibaba Group (Mentor: Cheng Hong).
2017 - Study on Searchable Encryption and Secure Data Deduplication (Mentor: Jianfeng Wang).
