- I am currently a PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania advised by Prof. Sebastian Angel.
- I am interested in computer systems in general and especially applying different tools (e.g., cryptography) to build decentralized, federated, privacy-preserving, and efficient systems.
- I obtained my bachelor's degree in both Software Engineering and Finance (minor) from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
- Previously I was a member of the Institute of Parallel and Distributed Systems (IPADS) where I had the great fortune to be advised by Prof. Rong Chen and learned a lot from the amazing guys there.
- I also spent a great summer at Penn working with Prof. Boon Thau Loo and Prof. Nik Sultana.
