Now, I am a Postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Network Science and Cyberspace of Tsinghua University. My research covers a range of topics in network security, Internet measurement and data analysis.

I obtained my Ph.D. from Tsinghua University under the supervision of Haixin Duan and Ying Liu in 2020. Before that, I received my bachelor’s degreee from XiDian University in 2015.

Since September 2016, I am working as a research intern at 360 Network Security Research Lab (360 NETLAB), under the supervision of Zaifeng Zhang, Dr. Jinjin Liang, and Fengpei Li.

Since January 2018, I spent one year as a visiting research scholar (member of the Networking and Security Group) at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) in Berkeley, reporting to Vern Paxson. I really enjoyed this fantastic and awesome experience!
