I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Michigan State University, and leading the Network System and Security (NSS) Research laboratory (@ 2153EB) in the department. I received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from University of California, Los Angeles, where I was a member of the WiNG group led by Professor Songwu Lu, in 2015. Before that, I received an MS degree in Computer Science from National Taiwan University in 2003, and the B.S. degree in Computer Science from National Central University in 2001. My research interests include computer and network security, mobile networks and systems, and wireless networking.
I am looking for several self-motivated Ph.D. students who want to work on interesting topics in the areas of security, wireless/cellular networking, Internet of Things, and mobile systems. My ongoing research projects include but not limited to the security in Wi-Fi, cellular networks (4G/5G), mobile devices, IoT, and blockchain (e.g., BTC, ETH, EOS). In my NSS lab, you are projected to learn and apply interdisciplinary technologies such as machine learning, data mining, computer vision, networking to address a variety of research issues, e.g., security loopholes or performance problems. You may participle or lead the research projects which collaborated with faculty members in other research fields (e.g., data science, computer engineering). More details about the short/medium-term research goals of NSS lab can be discovered in our recent publications and NSF projects. If you are interested in working with me, please email me your resume and your research interests. Note that the students who graduated from the EE/ECE/Communication-related departments or have an extensive experience in OpenAirInterface or other SDR-based 4G/5G platforms are encouraged to contact me.
