I'm currently a fourth-year Ph.D. student of the Department of Information Engineering (IE) at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). I'm fortunately working with Prof. Sherman S. M. Chow. My research interests include Differential Privacy (DP) with application in AI/ML/NLP and Applied Cryptography (e.g., Searchable Symmetric Encryption).

Prior to that, I received M.Eng. in School of Cyber Science and Engineering at Wuhan University (WHU) in 2018, advised by Prof. Qian Wang, and B.S. in HongYi Class (or honor college) of Computer Science at WHU in 2015. In 2021, I did a summer intern at Shield Lab of Huawei.
