About Me

I'm a 5th year Ph.D. student at Georgia Tech and working with professor Taesoo Kim.
My research direction is system security, more specifically, solving security problems by using trusted execution enviornment (TEE), such as Intel SGX, and studying the security issues of existing TEEs themselves.
I worked as a research intern in Microsoft Research under the mentorship of Marcus Peinado during summer 2016 and 2017.
I received my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering at National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) in 2012 and 2013, respectively. Before studying at Georgia Tech, I worked as a software engineer in Mozilla for two years. Please see my CV for more detail.
