About Me

I’m an incoming Assistant Professor in Computer Science at Duke University starting 2021 Fall. I’m currently a security researcher at Chainlink Labs. My research primarily focuses on security/privacy/scalability problems in decentralized systems, especially those enabled by blockchain protocols and trusted execution environments (TEEs). I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Cornell University, advised by Prof. Ari Juels. I received my bachelor’s degree from Tsinghua University. (Full bio here.)

I devise novel cryptographic protocols, build systems that work for a reason, and reveal interesting facts via empirical measurements. Here are some projects I’ve been working on:

I’m always looking for motivated students! Send me an email if you are interested.
