I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science Department at Virginia Tech, working with Prof. Danfeng (Daphne) Yao.

My research interests lie broadly in cyber security and network forensics, cyber-physical systems, Internet of things, pervasive computing, and wireless sensor networks. My current work focuses on anomaly detection in Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things.
