I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

 

From 2011 to 2013, I was a post-doctoral researcher at CSAIL MIT and the Computer Science department of Boston University, working with Shafi Goldwasser and Ran Canetti. I completed my PhD in 2011 at Cornell University with Rafael Pass as advisor. Previously, I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Zhejiang University, China.

 

News: I am looking for bright and motivated students who are interested in Cryptography, in interdisciplinary research involving Cryptography and in Theory of Computation in general. If you would like to work with me, please contact me via email.

 

In the quarter of Fall 2014, I teach a grad-level class Foundations of Cryptography. This class is designed for students who are interested in research in Cryptography, or in applying cryptography to research in other areas. Contact me if you have questions regarding the class.

 

 

Research Interests

My research interests lie in Cryptography, and its interplay with other areas in computer science, such as, theory of computing, algorithm design and security.
