Department of Computer Science
I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Colorado School of Mines (Ranking facts are here). I received my Ph.D. from University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass Amherst) in 2018 under the supervision of Professor David Irwin. At Mines, I lead the Cyber-Physical Systems Laboratory (CPSLab), which focuses on designing data-driven computer systems with an emphasis on improving Cybersecurity, User Privacy and Sustainability of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and the Internet of Things (IoT). On my recent CPS/IoT privacy systems research, I received the NSF CAREER Award from the Computer Systems Research (CSR) program in the Division of Computer and Network Systems in 2023. I am a member of ACM and IEEE. I also worked as Unix Software Engineer in industry for two years.
- I am always interested in doing research with self-motivated graduate and undergraduate students and postdocs. If you are interesting in building data-driven CPS/IoT systems, please feel free to contact me!
My research aims to build data-driven experimental computer systems to improve Cybersecurity, User Privacy, and Sustainability of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and the Internet of Things (IoT).
- My work has also been spanning multiple technical fields, including AI@Edge, Tiny Machine Learning, Federated/Split Learning, and Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning.
Recently, I have been looking into research problems spanning different scales, from the IoT and Edge Computing devices ⇨ smart homes/buildings ⇨ renewable energy systems ⇨ smart grids ⇨ smart cities.
My research has been applied into multiple CPS/IoT application domains, including Smart and Connected Communities, Maritime Transportation System, Underwater Cyberinfrastructure, and Personal Home Health Monitoring.
I open-source all the systems (including their evaluation datasets) I build.
