I'm an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of New Hampshire. Before joining UNH, I obtained my Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University. I received my master's degree at University of Science and Technology of China and bachelor's degree at Jilin University.
My research interest is software security, especially program analysis on binary code, software obfuscation/de-obfuscation, malware analysis, program similarity analysis, and model checking.
