My Experience

  • University of California, Riverside

    Graduate Student Researcher of Professor Zhiyun Qian. 2015 - Present

    • Research on automated side-channel discovery in graphic applications.
      • Instrumented Linux & Android graphic libraries and collect runtime trace.
      • Automated side-channel discovery using machine learning techniques.
      • Designed and implemented flush+reload attack on Linux/Android to predict user’s sensitive input.
    • Research on prime+probe cache side-channel attack on Android graphics
      • Reverse-engineered Android apps to study their drawing behaviors. Utilize this information to craft a prime & probe strategy.
      • Designed and implemented prime and probe attack to locate the cache footprints generated by Android apps.
      • Studied completely fair scheduler (CFS) on Android. Ported existing CFS attack code to both x86 and ARM versions of Android.

    Graduate Student Researcher of Professor Harsha V. Madhyastha. 2013 - 2015

    • Implemented SPDY server push functionality for Node.js SPDY proxy module.
    • Evaluated the performance of the proxy using Google Chrome for Android.
    • Designed and implemented framework to detecting targeted advertisement and evaluating tracking countermeasures such as Do-not-track.

    Graduate Student Researcher of Professor Gianfranco Ciardo. 2012 - 2013

    • Studied the C++ implementation of Terminal and Edge valued Decision Diagram librarY (TEDDY).

    • Designed and implemented mechanism for adapting browser-based rich clients to mobile phones and transforming them to Android applications.

My Hobbies

I love music. I've been playing the Guitar since 2012 and I'm learning the piano. I mainly perform solos of pop songs but I will also do sing-alongs occasionally. I also enjoy good movies and video games, especially the ones with impressive stories. Finally, I have a great apitite for good foods. I especially loves spicy foods thanks to my former roomates from Sichuan and Hunan :-)
