Hello! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. I am also leading the Data Security and Privacy Lab (DSP-Lab).

I received the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at Illinois Tech. under the supervision of Professor Xiang-Yang Li and Professor Peng-Jun Wan in 2017, and I received the B.E. degree in Computer Software in Tsinghua University under the supervision of Professor Zhiguo Wan in 2011.

Various encryption and secure multi-party computation are able to preserve a nearly-perfect confidentiality of almost all computation nowadays, however privacy can be breached even though the computation/communication are perfectly secured. Differential privacy addresses such concerns, but we have to sacrifice the nearly-perfect accuracy of computation/query with its probabilistic privacy protection. Can human being have nearly-perfect guarantee (i.e., as strong as that provided by encryption/MPC) for privacy without the loss of utility? That is the ultimate question I keep asking myself while doing research.

I am recruiting 1-2 Ph.D. student for admission in Fall 2023. I am looking for someone who has some backgrounds and interest in (1) lattice-based cryptography, (2) trusted execution environment, (3) zero-knowledge proofs, OR (4) blockchain architecture.


Please see this page for application instruction if you have backgrounds/interest in any of those four areas.
