Short bio

I received my B.Eng. in Computer Engineering and M.Phil. in Computer Science & Engineering from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in 2010 and 2012 respectively. I am now working towards a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Texas at Austin. I am interested in privacy, security and distributed systems.
