University of California Berkeley


I am a third-year Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at UC Berkeley, where I am very fortunate to be advised by Prof. Dawn Song. I also work closely with Prof. Yupeng Zhang. I am a member of RISE Lab, Initiative for Cryptocurrencies&Contracts Lab (IC3), and Berkeley AI Research (BAIR). My research interests lie in computer security and cryptography, especially zero-knowledge proofs and their applications on blockchain and machine learning models. Prior to coming to Berkeley, I received my Bachelor’s degree in ACM Honors Class of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where I worked under the supervision of Prof. Xiaotie Deng. During my undergraduate, I was also a research intern at Cornell University, advised by Prof. Elaine Shi.
