I am an Associate Professor in the School of Computer Science at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT). I am leading the PRIDE Research Group (Security, Privacy, and Dependability in Emerging Software Systems). My research covers a wide range of topics in Software (Program) Analysis, Privacy and Security, eCrime, Internet/System Measurement, and AI Security.

My recent research projects are mainly focused on:
1) Security, privacy and underground market in the mobile app ecosystem (NDSS 2022, ICSE 2021);
2) Fintech & Blockchain Security (SIGMETRICS 2022, USENIX SEC 2021, SIGMETRICS 2021*2);
3) The intersection of AI and program analysis techniques (TOSEM 2021, OOPSLA 2020).

I have published over 80 peer-reviewed papers, including 41 full papers published in top-tier venues (35 CCF-A Papers, and 33 CSRankings Papers). My research usually targets top-tier Software Engineering Venues (ICSE/FSE/ASE/ISSTA), Security Venues (CCS/NDSS/Oakland/USENIXSec), Web and Measurement Venues (WWW/IMC/SIGMETRICS). I have been awarded three best/distinguished paper awards, including WWW 2020 Best Student Paper Award (the first award in China), and ACM OOPSLA 2020 Distinguished Paper Award.

I have released a number of tools and datasets, including LibRadar (LibRadar++), WuKong, CHAMP, and RMVDroid, etc. They have been widely used by the research community and the industry. My research has been covered by over 20 media outlets all around the world, including CoinDesk, Yahoo Finance, Coin Geek, Publish0x, nasdaq.com, Cryptonews CoinGenius, etc.

I received my PhD degree in Computer Science from Peking University in 2016. I was a Visiting PhD Student at Carnegie Mellon University (2014-2015) and a Visiting Professor at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (2019).

I'm always looking for highly motivated PhD/master students, visiting students, and BUPT undergraduate interns (RAs) to work in my team. Hard work always pays off!
