I am currently a PhD candidate of the Department of Computer Science, Volgenau School of Engineering at George Mason University, working with Professor Songqing Chen. I received BS degree in College of Computer Science and Techonology at Jilin University in 2012.

My research interests focus on network security, distributed system and software-defined networking. The topics I am currently working on include:

  • Distributed Denial of Service attacks modeling and mitigation
  • Programmable and flexible functions integration to software-defined networking architecture for security solutions
