I’m a Ph.D. candidate at CISPA, where I am supervised by Prof. Michael Backes and advised by Dr. Yang Zhang. My research focuses on the intersection of machine learning and security, specifically in the areas of poisoning attacks and inference attacks.

I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Physics from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2019. I completed a summer research internship at the University of Tokyo under the supervision of Prof. Tsuyoshi Takagi, where I focused on the security evaluation of LWE-based cryptosystems. Following that, I did my final year thesis at Shanghai Jiao Tong University under the guidance of Prof. Yu Yu.

I am passionate about applying my research to real-world problems and welcome opportunities to collaborate with industry and academia to advance the state-of-the-art in machine learning security and privacy.
