I am an assistant professor at the CIS department of
Michigan-Dearborn, where I lead the Security and Forensics Research Laboratory ( SAFE
Lab). I obtained my PhD degree from the
University of California, Irvine in 2009. I was with
Research Center (Summer 2008) and
Institute for Infocomm Research, Singapore (2000~2005). Here is my CV .
I am broadly interested in the general area of security, privacy,
and applied cryptography. My research spans a wide range of topics,
including computation over authenticated/encrypted data, fine-grained
access control, secure storage systems, wireless network security,
smartphone security and privacy, and so on. My research is supported by
NSF, AFOSR, and Intel. Please visit
lab for more details. PUBLICATIONS
