About me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Southern California (USC). My Ph.D. advisor is Prof. Pierluigi Nuzzo. I received my BSEE from Nankai University (2017) and MSEE from USC (2019).

My research interests focus on hardware security solutions for intellectual property (IP) protection against threats coming from the integrated circuit (IC) supply chain, including the design and formal analysis of circuit obfuscation methods to prevent IC reverse-engineering. You may find a list of my publications here.
