Shuai Wang is an Assistant Professor at CSE, HKUST since 2019. Prior to that, he was a Postdoctoral Scholar in the AST lab at ETH Zurich. He received his Ph.D. from Penn State University, and B.S. from Peking University.

I belong to both the Cybersecurity group and the Software Engineering and Programming Languages group at HKUST.

My research focuses on Computer Security and Software Engineering. I am particularly interested in binary code reverse engineering, software and system security, and low-level security techniques.

UROP on Software and System Security available from this fall. For UG students, contact me if you were interested.

I am recruiting multiple PhD/MPhil students starting from 2020 Fall. Topics will focus on Software, System, AI, and Blockchain Security.
