About Yizheng Chen

header I am a PhD candidate at Georgia Institute of Technology, advised by Wenke Lee and Manos Antonakakis. I am also a member of Astrolavos Lab and GTISC. Before I came to Georgia Tech, I received the B.S. degree in Information Security from Fudan University, Shanghai, China, in 2011. In 2009, I spent one quarter as an undergraduate exchange student in University of California, Santa Barbara.
 

Research Interests

Currently I work in the area of DNS security, applied machine learning and online advertising fraud.
