Hello! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, and I am 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.

My research area includes privacy & security issues in data mining and provisioning in the big data life cycle. My research has resulted in over 30 publications in top-tier conferences and journals with h-index of 13, and 3 of them received best paper award or best paper award runner up (BigCom 2015, IEEE IPCCC 2014, ACM MobiHoc 2014).

I have also served as the publicity co-chair of BigCom 2015 and the technical program committee member of BigCom 2017, IEEE IPCCC 2016, IEEE MSN 2016, BigCom 2016, IEEE DCOSS 2016.



I am looking for self-motivated, hard-working, and mature Ph.D. students to fill in several open TA/RA positions in our lab. If you are interested in security and privacy research in big data (which involves research in applied cryptography and A.I./machine learning) and want to join our lab, please read this.

Several part-time positions in applied cryptography are available for undergraduate students too! Please email Prof. Taeho Jung for an appointment.
