My C.V. is avaliable here.


I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at University of Michigan in Fall 2018 and will be advised by Prof. Atul Prakash. I received my B.S. and M.S. degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University and have spent about 4 years in doing research in NSEC lab.

I am currently working on the problem of building more robust machine learning models and understanding the vulnerability of the deep learning models from a security perspective.

Programming Skills

C/C++: I have implemented a small-C compiler in compiler principle course project(Github repository) and an editor which can be used to edit the scene of irrlicht engine.

Python: Most systems, such as web crawler and detection system, in my research were implemented in Python 3.

Matlab: I used Matlab to complete the project in the Twelfth China Post-Graduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling.

Web development(Nodejs, Javascript, PHP, Python, SQL, HTML, CSS): I have a strong interest in technique about web development and I am familiar with serveral web development languages and tools(such as gulp, docker) which are created for or related to web development. I have participated in the development of several websites (hsmake.com, 59store.com, aixinwu.sjtu.edu.cn) and this website is supported by Express and Bootstrap.

Other skills: LaTeX, Git, Tensorflow, Pytorch.
