I am a Ph.D. student at SAND Lab, University of Chicago, co-advised by Professor Ben Y. Zhao and Professor Heather Zheng.

My research lies in the intersection of machine learning and security and privacy. Currently, I am exploring the limitations, vulnerabilities, and privacy implications of neural networks. Some of my recent works include protecting neural networks from backdoor and adversarial attacks, using imperceptible perturbation to protect user privacy, etc.

I received my BS in computer science from University of Chicago. I have spent two summers at Facebook as a software engineer.
