I received my BSc from HKUST in 2010 and my MMath and PhD from the University of Waterloo in 2012 and 2016 respectively. I have published papers at multiple top security and privacy venues, and I am serving on the Program Committee of the Privacy Enhancing Symposium 2017.
I am a member of the newly established Cybersecurity Lab at HKUST.
My research is in privacy and security, with a special focus on anonymity networks. During my PhD, I studied the problem of website fingerprinting, with which a local, passive eavesdropper can identify the pages visited by a web-browsing client, even if the client was using proxies and encryption. I wrote my thesis, titled "Website Fingerprinting: Attacks and Defenses", on this topic.
I am teaching COMP6613B: Hot Topics in Privacy Enhancing Technologies in Fall 2016. My course materials are on Canvas; here is a copy of the introduction and paper schedule (but they may not be most up-to-date).
I taught CS 458/658 (Computer Security and Privacy) for Fall 2015 at the University of Waterloo.
