I am a security scientist at Baidu USA. I earned my Ph.D. from Arizona State University, advised by Prof. Gail-Joon Ahn, in 2015. I got my B.S. in Information Security from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2010.

I’m the author and maintainer of MesaLink, a memory-safe and OpenSSL-compatible TLS library; and bRPC-rs, Rust bindings to Apache bRPC. Both projects are implemented in Rust.

My resume can be downloaded here.
