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 mostly) and want to join our lab, please read this.

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