I am an assistant professor at Institute for Network Sciences and Cyberspace ,Tsinghua University in Beijing, China.

I’m always looking for highly motivated Ph.D., master, and undergraduate students interested in AI security, AI on Networking, Big Data Security, and Communication Security. Please send me an email with your CV if you are interested.


Before joining Tsinghua University, I worked as a research engineer at LINCS Lab, and co-affiliated with Telecom Paris in Paris, France from 2020 to 2021. I used to work as a PostDoc at the Department of Network and Computer Science Department (INFRES), Telecom Paris in Paris, France from 2017 to 2019. Prior to that, I received my Ph.D. in Telecom Paris (previously known as “Telecom-ParisTech” before 2019) in France at 2017. I obtained my M.Eng degree from Insitute Eurecom in France, and a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Engineering at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) in China.

Research Interests

My research interests mainly focus on solving the security and privacy issues in computing systems, e.g. machine learning systems, edge/cloud computing, image processing systems, big data, and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication systems. Currently, I am mainly working on AI security topics including Adversarial Examples (AE), Backdoor Learning, Privacy-preserving Machine Learning, and AI on Networking, etc.
