I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science in December, 2001 from Nanjing University, China. My Ph.D. advisors were Professor Li Xie and Professor Zhongxiu Sun. Before I became an assistant professor in 2004, I had been a postdoctoral research associate in Professor Peng Liu's Cyber Security Lab at The Pennsylvania State University, University Park.
I joined the Department of Computer Science, The University of Texas at San Antonio in July, 2015. My research interests include computer and network security.
