About Me

I graduated from Shanghai Jiao Tong University with a B.Eng. in Computer Software Engineering in 2019 summer. I spent one year at Northwestern CS and then transferred to UC Santa Barbara to continue my Ph.D. in the intersection of distributed system and applied cryptography. I currently work with Prof. Shumo Chu. I am interested in the following topics: 1) privacy-preserving algorithm design and (decentralized) system implementation with trusted hardware like SGX, differential privacy or modern cryptographic primitives, especially zero knowledge proofs. 2) build distributed heterogeneous systems to accelerate the generation of zero knowledge proof for extremely large circuits.
