About Me

Hello! I am a second-year Ph.D. student studying Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan, where I am advised by Prof. Paul Grubbs. Before joining the Ph.D. program, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Information Engineering with first-class honors from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, located in Hong Kong, my hometown.

My research interests are in applied cryptography, focusing on zero-knowledge proofs and secure multiparty computation. I am passionate about developing secure and functional systems using cryptographic tools.
