       Department of CSE
       Wright State University
       Dayton, OH

I am currently a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Wright State University. Prior to that, I worked as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the College of Information Sciences and Technology at the Pennsylvania State University. I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from West Virginia University, and my master's degree in Computer Science from Beijing Normal University.

My research interests are machine learning and security, with emphases in:

  • Trustworthy machine learning: adversarial attacks and defenses, secure machine learning, adversary for social good, adversarial reprogramming, trojan attacks, other trustworthy issues
  • Security: malware detection, software security, program analysis, other security issues
  • Complementary technologies: representation learning, heterogeneous information network embedding, graph and sequence learning, other machine learning technologies
  • For my publications and bibliometrics, please refer to Publications and Google Scholar.

    Openings: I am looking for self-motivated students (Ph.D., master, undergraduate) to work with me on various cool projects in machine learning and security. Please drop me an email with your CV if interested.
